Turning on line wrapping in Terminal
Authored by: chrisale on Feb 16, '05 11:48:24AM

What I like to do if I get a result from a Terminal command that is either really long, or all on one line.. I just "pipe it" to a file.

So, for this command I do:

ioreg -l >> ioreg.txt

Which dumps everything into that text file (in the current directory), then I can read it much more easily, search it, save it ect. Works great for man pages too.
