Is there a way to prevent konsole from wrapping lines? It would be great if I could do it without disabling any of the other features like extended colors and other of the fancier things.
There's a VT100 control sequence for that, which should be supported by Konsole. It's called DECAWM, and here's how to emit it:
echo -ne '\e[?7l'
My question would be though: why?
