Even I wonder, if it is possible. I know a couple of commands only; enable clipaging or disabling clipaging. :)

You are correct, it is either enable or disable clipaging..

clipaging has been, lets say "interesting", since the start.

I've never asked about it - but it looks like the configuration from various parts of EXOS are displayed in sequence; and cli paging only gets a look-in at the end of each section.

So it isn't really a true pager that stops the output every XX lines, and you wouldn't be able to set this properly anyway :(

You're stuck with it either on or off, I'm afraid.

It sounds like an easy script to do :)

I just stumbled upon some configuration options for this in a beta build of an upcoming release.  We'll see if it makes it to GA :)

# configure cli
  columns        Number of columns on the screen

The configuration options I mentioned above are now available in EXOS 16.1, which was released last Thursday (6/18).
More details of the new options are available in the Command Reference Guide, specifically here.
