Terminal : Infinite Terminal Scaling
Is there a terminal that has the capacity for an infinite width?
I usually tool around in rxvt, but as it stands I am working on a project that needs to display a matrix in standard output and when it does so it wraps the lines.
I need the array to display one row per line.
With rxvt you can designate your own geometry, but the maximum allowed scale horizontally is 1000. The array only has 300 elements but each element is a 6 digit number, hence the wrapping.
The problem was solved by writing a script that fills a spreadsheet, so I can effectively review the matrix using Calc, but I do still wonder about the terminal limitations...
If no terminal has the potential for infinite width, which has the greatest?
