41.3 Find Out Terminal Settings with stty

stty
It may hardly seem appropriate to follow Chris Torek's learned article about how stty works (41.2 ) with some basics, but this book is designed for beginners as well as those who already know everything. :-) (51.12 ) [Good idea, Tim. This is also a handy place to put the disc icon for the GNU version. ;^) -JP ] So:

To find out what settings your terminal line currently has, type:

% stty

For a more complete listing, type:

% stty -a

on System V-ish systems, and:

% stty -everything

on BSD systems.

As Jerry Peek said in an editorial aside to Chris's article, be sure to have your stty manual page handy!
