Is there any command parameter for WolframScript that changes after how many characteres a continuation line is inserted? For example, using // MatrixForm output with continuation breaks is rather pointless. Or is the value fixed due to Win/Dos limitations?

(* { ..., PageWidth -> 78, ...} *)

SetOptions["stdout", PageWidth -> Infinity];
