I'm not a mac user, but I have some experience with posix systems from which mac drawn this bit of functionality, so the question: does the output of git-log go straight to the terminal or is it piped to some sort of "pager" program like "more" or "less"? In the former case you should check Terminal's settings (google for "Mac+Terminal+word+wrap"), in the latter case you should check the pager's settings. Less, for instance, has the "chop long lines" option (also available interactively, as the "-S" literal key sequence toggle); you can set this option permanently by adding "-S" to the contents of the "LESS" environment variable. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Git for human beings" group.
