comment How to disable line wrap in a terminal?
I made some experiences with screen and xterm as those emulators have options to prevent line wraps. But there is a big difference between truncating the line and hiding the tail of the line so we can view it if we want. Using tail -f file | less -S is not perfect as it seems to disable the -f but it is the best solution I found.

comment How to disable line wrap in a terminal?
Thanks enzotib. That works, but it trims the line and we are unable to see the end of the long lines. Is is possible to make cut behave like less -S where the long line are buffered and we are able to see the complete line using the directional keys?
