        When I use "tput lines" to get the lines of console, it works, and also 
works in a script.
        And if execute the command in a script with the command substitution, 
it works well too.
        But if execute the script with the redirection "2>/dev/null", it won't 
work well.
        I'm not sure whether it is a bug or just my lack of some required 
        Please see one example below.

        $ cat abc.sh
        tput lines
        echo $(tput lines)

        If execute the script with the content above, it is all right like :
        $ ./abc.sh

        But if execute the script like this :
        $ ./abc.sh 2>/dev/null

        We will get :

        I don't know why it is.  What is amazing is the number 24. 
        The number would never change no matter how I resize the console or 
other terminals.

        It also happens when a line of command in the script like "tput lines | 

        I haven't see the source code of BASH.  I'm very sorry for having no 
good advice about this.
        And also sorry for my poor English. @_@
