How can I print a text file such that lines that do not fit are truncated instead of wrapped?

So far I've tried:

  • Notepad
  • Notepad++
  • Visual Studio

Those appear to always word-wrap when printing, with no option to disable the wrapping.

Have you tried just plain old 'lpr' from the command line? I seem to remember that truncating long lines for me... –  John Nov 6 '13 at 18:02
