Follow-up Comment #7, bug #41893 (project octave):
Aren't we caching what has already been displayed?
Is there some reason that our cache of the text that has already been
displayed can't be kept and used when the terminal size is reduced? That way
we could preserve what was there previously while still allowing wrapping to
occur. And then if the terminal width is later enlarged, we would still have
all the characters that were previously displayed, not the truncated version
that the terminal buffer contains.
I guess this would require maintaining a list of buffers of possibly different
sizes along with some extra complexity in the code that displays the buffers.
Or maybe it's not possible to know when to use our cache vs. using the info
from the terminal?
