Resolve a messed up terminal screen

Sometimes, a terminal screen is messed up. This often happens after resizing the screen, or when you're logged in through a jump box.
br /> To resolve this matter, simply type "resize" and it should help in resizing the screen to the correct number of lines and columns. For example:

$ resize
The "resize" command can be found in /usr/bin/resize, and if not installed on the system, can be installed by installing the "xterm" package, which contains the /usr/bin/resize binary.
