Actually, I think this may depend on context. options(width =...)
directly controls only what is described in it's Help file. It does
not necessarily control the width of lines in the console or whatever
GUI you might be interacting with, nor necessarily the width at which
many objects are printed, which is under the control of their print()
methods, including defaults. Note, however, many such defaults default
to the options value, which may or may not be what you want for them.
