From Rosetta Code

The   LINESIZE.REX   is a REXX program to emulate the   linesize   BIF for some REXX programs.

The help for the   LINESIZE   REXX program is included here ──► LINESIZE.HEL.

/*REXX*/ trace off
┌─┘ └─┐
│ The LINESIZE function exists for those REXX interpreters that don't │
│ support the LINESIZE built-in function. │
│ │
│ The following REXXes (and others) support the LINESIZE as a BIF: │
│ │
│ CMS │
│ Personal REXX │
│ R4 │
│ ROO │
│ TSO │
│ │
│ Method: to save time, this program first attempts to find the DOS │
│ environmental variable LINES. Failing that, it then parses the result │
│ from the MODE CON (DOS) command and scans for the COLUMNS text. │
