SQL*Plus Buffer Overflow

I am trying to spool output from a PL/SQL procedure to a local file with DBMS_OUTPUT.put_line.
After a few loops through a cursor, the following error arises:

ERROR at line 1:
ORA-20000: ORU-10027: buffer overflow, limit of 2000 bytes
ORA-06512: at line 52

SQL*Plus will not let me increase the screen buffer over 2000.

I've seen this remedied before but can't recall. Who knows the solution?

To increase buffer, use set serveroutput command:

  SET SERVEROUTPUT ON SIZE buffer_size

  For example:  SET SERVEROUTPUT ON SIZE 5000.

To verify the buffer size do SHOW SERVEROUTPUT.

For additional information on DBMS_OUTPUT refer to page 354 of ORACLE PL/SQL Programming.
