Increase Console Output in Eclipse [Howto]

By default, Eclipse limits the amount of text in the console output window. So if you are running a program which produces a lot of output, the Console will only display the last n lines and you lose the rest.

Here is a tip which will allow you to have unlimited output in the console:
  • Go to Window > Preferences > Run/Debug > Console
  • Uncheck "Limit Console Output" (Alternatively you can increase the Console buffer size.)

    Thank you! I'd looked in what I thought *had* to be all the places where Eclipse sticks options/preferences. Hadn't looked under 'Windows.' It's people bothering to post little bits of help like this who make the Web so fabulous.
