See attached pic.

The long text (variable "txt") isn't wrapped at the terminal pane's border but is wrapped at ht apparently looks like some hidden default maximum terminal width.

For reference, the help txt for e.g., clc is about 80 (or is it 72?) chars wide.

IMO this is a minor issue, but it's often deceiving when working on long strings (e.g., when dealing with XML).

I this is intentional, e.g., because of the known terminal pane deficiencies in the GUI on windows, it would be nice if the default terminal width could be made configurable.
Or if not feasible, where in the code is it set? so that I can adapt it in my own builds.
