Often i do cut / paste text output from one programme and paste it in a terminal window, like so:
# cat > newfile.txt
--- paste the output of another programme
The maximum length of the line in my terminals is now about 8K. I try to copy longer lines to the terminal and they get truncated. Afaik there can be different programmes involved, like what terminal do i use (xterm, rxvt, konsole, putty, etc.), do they use terminfo or termcap, terminal settings, stty.
Where can i set the maximum line length?
