When you use a default Terminal + Bash from Ubuntu 20.02.1 LTS with Gnome 3.36.3,
ps aux seems to automatically include the unlimited width.
But when I use
ps aux is truncated by default, and you have to manually specify
auxww to get the full output.
Which makes me think that this is controlled by some sort of environment variable.
ps aux automatically default to
ww so that the output is not truncated? In my case, I never want the
ps aux output to be truncated.
