ITEQ Display Control Commands

Display control commands are used to view lengthy results on the terminal screen. For example, if a result is wider than the display screen, display control commands may be used to move the screen right or left over the result up to 512 character positions.

Table 3 lists the ITEQ display control commands. Chapter 3 contains a complete description of each display control command.
