I'm running HP-UX c8000, B.11.11
The terminal type is dtterm (echo $TERM).
The problem is that the terminal does not show the entire "history" when I scroll the window backwards.
If I run ls -l and the output runs to terminal I can't see the whole output.
How can I fix it?

To set the number of linkes of scroll back for dtterm, you use the '-sl' option.
dtterm -sl 4000l
will invoke dtterm and give you 4000 lines of scroll back capability. The maximum number for scroll back is 32,767 (I think).

Thank you for the replies.
The command dtterm -sl 4000l is good only for the next opened terminal.
How do I make this setting to take place persistently for root and for other users?
Why does this terminal setting is different for my other machines? Is it part of the env variables?

Users that are using X, need to know how to configure their own display. Or they are better off using Windows to do this.

Mine was coded in menus. Or in ~/.Xdefaults.

Sorry, I missed that.
Users are invoking terminals from the Front Panel menu.
I add the .Xdefaults file into the home directory of a user and add the following:
Then I ran:
but still, I can't see enough scrolled lines when I scroll back.

In my old .mwmrc there was an explicit call to hpterm where I could set it.
>I add the .Xdefaults file into the home directory of a user and add the following:
Don't you need dtterm?
I thought I used to use -merge?
>I can't see enough scrolled lines when I scroll back.
Do you also need to enable the scrollbar?

I can see the definition for that in .mwmrc file.
> Don't you need dtterm?
does not work as well
> I thought I used to use -merge?
did you mean to invoke "xrdb .Xdefaults -merge" ?
>Do you also need to enable the scrollbar?
I do have the scrollbar but when I scollback I can't see the first command I ran before on that terminal.

It is finally works. The saveLine parameter was added to the .Xdefaults file as follow:
xrdb -merge .Xdefaults
and the new terminal takes the effect.

I Installed a new B.11.11 OS and I face the same problem again.
I tried to edit .Xdefaults with the relevant lines but somehow it doesn't work this time.
I attached the screen shut
This is the end of the file with my 3 additional lines at the end.

dtterm*scrollLine: 10000 dtterm*scrollBar: true dtterm*saveLine: 1000l
should have Lines rather than Line:
dtterm*scrollLines: 10000 dtterm*scrollBar: true dtterm*saveLines: 1000l

It is fine now. (there was a bad value name inide). So for dtterm sessions it works!
Also, we are running scripts that thier outputs do into files.
These files display "online" on the screen and the person how runs it should check the running of the program.
But now due to the scrolling problem it is impossiable to view whole the "running".
