in reply to Dynamic Adaptation in size of Terminal!!!

These really aren't that tough to find.

Please reference this link for the original question by a Mr. Jeff Silverman.

I want to build a perl script that adapts dynamically to terminalsize I am working on a perl program which uses VT100 style escape codes and runs in gnome-terminal or konsole or rxterm or xterm or similar. I want to know if there is a way to sent an escape sequence to the terminal emulator which queries for the current size of the screen and gets a report back. Does anybody know how to do this? Many thanks, Jeff Silverman

This is ridiculous.
