Short question: can you control the length of the word wrap function in energy plus output files (or turn wrapping off)? I looked through the IORef but didn't see it mentioned.

I assume you are talking about the ERR file. The format of many of the other output files interprets new lines as separators in data. Wrapping them prematurely might mess up any post-processing of the files.

Indeed - simply to the end of using a text editor's own wrapping function for ease of visually scanning through the ERR output.

The wrapping in the ERR file is not controlled to any specific number of characters. The output processor simply displays the strings as specified by the display routines (ShowSevereError, ShowFatalError, ShowContinueError, etc).

@Neal Kruis, I edited your answer to use permanent links to the GitHub repo line numbers. If develop moves, those line numbers may become incorrect. To get a permanent link, just hit y when browsing the file.

GitHub magic is stronger and darker than I suspected ...
