The line width set during a session remains in effect until another SET WIDTH command is entered.
When the result of a selection exceeds the maximum line width specified by n, the following error message is issued:
MAXIMUM LINE WIDTH IS n CHARACTERS (EXCEEDS PRINT LINEWIDTH)
The user may then enter a revised width value to adjust the print width before executing the PRINT command. If the print width is not adjusted, the printed result lines are truncated.
Note that the maximum number of characters for a displayed result line is 512. Result lines exceeding the width of a terminal may be viewed using the RIGHT or LEFT commands.
The SET WIDTH command can be executed within a macro.
