which client software are you using to connect to mysql databse ?
If you are using SqlYog or MysqlAdmin there is setting for no.of records to be displayed in result set.
Set appropriately or take output in csv/Xls/XML file

Here you are using Putty and if you want to do a scroll up and see the results:

Right Click on Putty Titlebar
Goto Window
Reset Line of scrollback = 1000 or whatever you want.

"LOL" !!!??

Monitor has no role to play here!!
Change the settings, you will get 1000 lines - scrollbar and you will be able to scroll back that much.
Will suffice your requirement.

sorry for laughing, i realy appreciated the answer you gave , but that solution does not satisfy the full problem..

omm let me explain properly , forget putty. because this one is in vmware environment so i had to use putty

i have mysql server installed on proper physical server which has a monitor aswell
i am standing infront of  that server
and i have executed " show variables " commadn which returned 256 row which impossilbe to fit in one screen. so  i cant see the first few records

thast why i want to know how can you customized this output to see page by page ..
