Xterm command line scrolling
On a recent linux system I've been using, the xterm window scrolls long commands horizontally on the same line (prints a "<" on col 80 and shifts all command text left). Most other systems I've used have just wrapped the command to the next line, a much preferred option for me since my prompt includes the current dir and generally leaves me little space between the cursor and column 80. I don't know what is responsible for this behavior on the terminal and no amount of google searches have turned up the answer. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
