Hello, I am using the screen terminal and while typing the big command, the text gets started overlapping on the same line instead of 'word wrap' on next line. How to get rid of this. Thanks!

can you run stty -a and post output? It could be a setting problem in the terminal setting. What type of terminal are you using?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

I mean are you sitting in front of the system console screen or are you using a remote connection s/w like putty, etc.

sorry Omar for not understanding your question correctly, I am running 'screen' on one of the linux host and from there I have connected many more host. so for remote connection I am not using putty. I am using 'terminal' from my MAC laptop to connect to the remotely running screen.

Apologize Omar for not updating the working solution.

I changed the terminal type from 'screen' to 'vt100' or 'xterm'
and it is working fine after that :-)

Thanks for the hint :-)
