I have somehow altered my setup such that editing text files in nano via PuTTY is line wrapping. I have tried numerous suggestions for forcing the nano editor to not wrap lines.
My latest attempt was to format the microSD card and re-install the Jessie image afresh. It is still happening, so it has to be something in PuTTY or the text itself.
I am editing my file using sudo nano myfile.txt, and then right clicking to paste the text. I should get 761 lines, but I am getting 1786 instead.
This did not used to happen. How did I get into this state, and how do I make it stop? Is there any other information I can provide that will be helpful?
EDIT: I checked the nanorc configuration file, and the set nowrap command/line is uncommented, thus I would expect the text to NOT wrap.
sudo nano) or for any user? If it's a Putty setting (which I suspect is responsible) you could clear the settings from the registry (after exporting them) so that you start with a clear slate.
