untruncated output of “ps”

You must have noticed that when you use the Unix command “ps“, the output’s length in truncated to fit the screen’s width. How to get the full output?

Note: Instead of “ps” I usually use “ps aux“.

Use the “ww” options too:

ps auxww

Are you interested in one particular PID?


(This is another thing that bugged me for years but a quick Google search enlightened me.)
