Hi all.

I used UTL_FILE to write my output to Unix. I have 160 character lines. The window split my lines by two. There is anyway to set up my Unix screen so I can see all 160 characters in one line?

Thank you in advance.

You created text file on the UNIX file system, right?

But how do you review this textfile, in vi or with cat or what?

Yes. I created a text file on the Unix. I used cat to view my file. I also tried vi but still saw my 160 character lines split by two.

If you have an 80 column window, then "unix" is forced to "split" the line to present it to you.
But most likely the record is still 160 characters in the file.
P.S.
What does this question have to do with SQL or PL/SQL?
You have a data presentation issue from *nix not Oracle.

I used utl_file to read data from oracle database then write output on Unix

Correction unix will not split the lines, it is getting wrapped. Having said that i am not able understand what is exactly your problem.

Thanks. I know that it's getting wrapped. But I would like to ask if there is anyway I can have my output display on screen in one line?

To my knowledge i don't think it is possible unix atleast in "vi". Again i am going to ask you the same question why do you want to see in a single line rather than two or n lines ?

Im not really clear on what you are after but if you are talking about the line size from utl_file you should read this

Thanks much for your responses. The reason I would like to see the output in one line because that is the requirement.

I am sorry dude if that is the case then a new editor need to be written for unix to show in a single line. All the very best.

vi or cat will split a 120 charter line, it has no choice given your screen is 80 charter wide.
