---------------------------------------

Hi Denis,

Thanks for volunteering to address this.

This issue should be very easy to fix indeed - but it will be great to familiarize yourself
with the (rather complicated) build and test system.

The wiki contains some useful informations for any new contributor:
http://wiki.apache.org/db-derby/DerbyDev

Basically, you will first need to check-out the latest development trunk of derby and set-up
your environment. See http://wiki.apache.org/db-derby/BuildingDerby for the details.

Then, I advise you to build all the jars right now - and to run the regression test suites.
In order to be sure everything is OK before you start modifying your version.
http://wiki.apache.org/db-derby/DerbyTesting

By searching thought the wiki and the mailing list, you should find all he required informations.
But feel free to ask is something goes wrong!

----

Concerning this issue per se, help messages are stored in a property file named "toolsmessages.properties"
(This is for the english version; you will find localized versions in the same folder).

After you made the required changes, you will have to change the master file for the corresponding
test as well. I think this is a file named "ij.out".

Finally re-run the regression test suites in order to verify there is no error after your
changes. And attach your patch here.

Regards,
- Sylvain

> In ij, some statements seem to assume 80 columns terminal to format their output (SHOW
FUNCTION, SHOW PROCEDURE).
> But not HELP.
> HELP should assume the same defaults in order to fit nicely in 80 columns terminal. An
other option would be to dynamically adjust the display to the real terminal width - but I
don't know if there is a portable way of doing this in Java.
