Re: [tlaplus] How to set the line width/turn off output wrapping?

I have a sequence variable that can get longer than a terminal line. If I print it or use -dump, it gets wrapped above a certain length, which is not what I want because I'd like to grep it for later processing.

Is there a setting to turn off wrapping for sequences?

The only thing remotely related is "-terse". Please consider opening a feature request [1].

In the meantime, you could experiment with an upcoming feature that we call alias [2] that might make grepping obsolete. Also, you could use yet another upcoming feature to format the error-trace in JSON format, on which you can filter with jq [3,4].
