Long console output

When one redirects e.g. the ouput of "ps faxl" to a file the right hand tail of the long lines are chopped off. Is it possible to set line-wrapping or to set the console width to something really big?

Yes, just add the option "w", it can be used several times in order to extend the line any longer:
# ps faxlwww
