How can one control output to the console. Using a console window on an X 
windows system with kde4 I find the output limited to a line of 179 chars 
which can be really inconvenient. Even when, for example:

# ps -aux >myfile
any chars beyond an apparent column limit of 179 are dropped and not 
transferred to the file.

How is the chars per line limit altered?
How does one enable console windows to wrap lines? 
How does one increase decrease type size for consoles?

Thanks in advance
