That was one of my initial thoughts too, but he seemed to talk about
ksh style side-scrolling when writing a long command, so my second
thought was that his TERM variable is wrong, or his system doesn't
have a terminal definition for whatever TERM variable he is using.

But then he seemed to imply that the side-scrolling stopped happening
after a while, at which point I gave up trying to understand.

Original poster: please tell us what terminal you are using, and what
the value of "$TERM" is.  Also which operating system you're on, and
if you're ambitious, the output of "infocmp" on this system.  Or at
least the first few lines of it, just to verify that it actually
exists and does not give an error.

I'm hoping that you didn't mean termcap literally, because termcap is
legacy BSD stuff from 3 decades ago that nobody should be using today.
