Do you agree with this?
Whatever I agree or not, it's not my concern about LibMenu. And it's not the original topic anymore...

Ok, when you choose to use terminal in your program, you have to know the limit of it. and to find how to deal with that.
BTW, please note that there is another way to display things on screen : graphics (TEXTOUT), then your program can control scroll.

Ok, lets come back to terminal limitations :

Yes, there is one : PRINT(""); but it add a new (empty) line.

When program ends, it allow user to scroll.
But yes, the program cannot control itself the terminal scroll.
As I know that limitation, I can stop spaming the terminal after 12 lines, place a wait and clean the terminal.
Ok, it's far from perfect...

BTW, you can create your own print function that do it for you :
untested :
Code:
local n:=0; // number of printed lines
EXPORT MyPRINT(x) // use that function instead of PRINT
BEGIN
n:=n+1;
PRINT(x);
if n==12 then 
 print"<press any key to continue>";
 wait();
 print(); // clean the terminal
 n:=0;
end;
END;
You place all of that into a new program, name it "compsystemSuperLib",
and voilĂ , you built a lib that enhance your Terminal experiance Wink
