Hello. This is annoying, pico or nano is good editor imho to use in ssh client, but it has very annoying poperty of breaking long lines. My code really becomes very messy and unreadable. Can I switch pico to save long lines and scroll horizontally?

there''s a -w (i think) switch you can pass to nano/pico

they both do it

you could also create an alias to use the -w switch automatically...

I''d like it to be 2 or 4, now it is maybe 8 chars, it is definitely too much for me!
