# $EPIC: geom.txt,v 1.3 2006/08/01 03:26:48 sthalik Exp $

Synopsis:

$geom()
$geom(<winref>)

Technical:

  • In the first case, the screen of the client's global current window is used.
  • In the second case, the screen of the given window refnum is used.
  • In both cases, the return value is two numbers, the first is the number of columns and the second is the number of lines on the screen.

Practical:

This function is mostly useful by providing the screen width. This could be used by a script to determine how wide it should format its output.

Returns:

X Y    "X" is screen's column width, "Y" is screen's line height

History:

This function first appeared in EPIC3pre7. Support for the <winref> argument first appeared in EPIC4-1.1.8.
