Text output

If you are sending text output to a terminal, and you do not need to format the screen for subsequent input, you do not need to create a map. BMS provides the SEND TEXT command expressly for this purpose.

When you use SEND TEXT, BMS breaks your output into pages of the proper width and depth for the terminal to which it is directed. Lines are broken at word boundaries, and you can add header and trailer text to each page if you want. Page size is determined as it is for other BMS output (see The SEND PAGE command).
