I use gnome-terminal on an X-Windows screen that is set at 1400x1050 in
24bit mode. I have a relatively small terminal font (old eyes so not as
small as in the past) so I can have 2 80x60 windows open side-by-side,
which gives me the capability to copy and paste from one to the other,
do HELP BASIC XXXXXX in one and read it while typing in the other (Okay,
I can't read and type anything coherent at the SAME time, but you get
the idea). As for using @(0,60), no, I don't do that. I regularly use
@(0,@CRTHIGH), or when changing width to test 132 column reports, do
LIST.FILE.STATS to see more data, I will use @(@CRTWIDE) syntax.

The very nice thing about gnome-terminal, and essentially all the
Linux-based emulators, is that I can size a window to, say 134x70
(examples only), telnet to my AIX server and have the TCL TERM settings
match. I use code like this to accomplish it:

0001 execute 'sh -c \termdef\' capturing TERMTYP
0003 execute 'set.term.type ':TERMTYP capturing TERM.OUTPUT
0004 execute 'sh -c \termdef -c\' capturing TCOLS
0005 TCOLS = TCOLS<1>
0006 execute 'sh -c \termdef -l\' capturing TLINES
0008 execute 'TERM ':TCOLS:',':TLINES

and call it from ~/uv/VOC UV.LOGIN.
