properties for vi

Hi,
I have a simple problem in vi of which I dont know the solution.

I have a file of 2000 lines. But when I open the file in vi, it only displays 20 lines and I have to use ctrl-f to see next lines.

How do change the screen settings in vi? I want to see screen full text.

stty rows 40 columns 80 doesn't help.

Any answers?

Thanks in advance,
-Ashish

Try setting the environment variables ROWS and COLUMNS. You can do this manually or use resize:
Code:
eval $(resize)

Thanks for your help.
eval $(resize) worked.

Can you please tell me what does it do?
