I need continuous output (Not Page by Page with --- More --- prompt)for "Show interface" command from Cisco 4507 switch, so that it could be passed to a script for calculating incremental CRC, Collisions etc.

I use "Terminal length 0" command before using the "Show interface" command it works on every other device including 6509, 3700, 2800 series Switches/Routers but not for 4507 Switch with following software details, The command will show output for few interfaces and then comes the message "Connection to host lost" any idea if its a BUG ??

Cisco IOS Software, Catalyst 4500 L3 Switch Software (cat4500-IPBASEK9-M), Version 12.2(31)SG, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc2)

or any other workaround to collect the command outpur without -- more -- prompt ??

Its either a bug or you have a dirty uplink connection to the 4500 , it works fine on our 4500's with 12.2.24EWA .
