I want to build a perl script that adapts dynamically to terminalsize

P: n/a
I am working on a perl program which uses VT100 style escape codes and
runs in gnome-terminal or konsole or rxterm or xterm or similar.

I want to know if there is a way to sent an escape sequence to the
terminal emulator which queries for the current size of the screen and
gets a report back.

Does anybody know how to do this?
Many thanks,
Jeff Silverman
