I'm a long time screen user trying to make the jump to tmux. One screen feature I use is the ability to truncate Ctrla
:set wrap output. This is especially useful when tailing log files or following compile sessions whose lines are hundreds of characters long.
I've read the
man page and googled extensively and cannot find an equivalent command, or a viable work-around using shell commands. The closest I can come up with is piping everything to
less -S and putting less into "follow" mode.
