Dear all,

Does anyone know how to make a line feed automatically based on the width of console window? For example, when you cat() a long character string just like this:

cat("Seminar series is an opportunity for students to learn about ongoing researches in the field of mathematics, computer science, physics, chemistry, and some other related programs. Students must complete a seminar attendance form and return to their mentors.\n")

In my computer, about half of the string is displayed with a symbol “$”at the end that looks like this:

> cat("Seminar series is an opportunity for students to learn about ongoing
> researches in the field of mathematics, computer science, physics,
> chemistry, a$

Any help will be appreciated!

Lisa
