# outwidth¶

## Purpose¶

Specifies the width of the auxiliary output.

## Format¶

outwidth n;


Parameters:

n

(scalar) width of auxiliary output.

## Examples¶

outwidth 132;


This statement will change the auxiliary output width to 132 columns.

## Remarks¶

n specifies the width of the auxiliary output in columns (characters). After printing n characters on a line, GAUSS will output a line feed.

If a matrix is being printed, the line feed sequence will always be inserted between separate elements of the matrix rather than being inserted between digits of a single element.

n may be any scalar-valued expressions in the range of 2-256. Non-integers will be truncated to an integer. If 256 is used, no additional lines will be inserted.

The default is setting is 256.
