I can use the black background in mintty with a full-screen
console window with low-light conditions during night or when
someone else is sleeping.
But it has the problem that it formats and displays text with
a limited with (of 80 character columns I guess), despite my
mintty window being twice as wide. I tried it on a Linux
system and there `perldoc` uses the entire console width.
Currently I have to use something like
PAGER="lynx -force_html -xhtml_parsing -nocolor" \
perldoc -o xhtml perl
but I would still like the man format if possible.
Is there an option to fix the display width for `perldoc` in
cygwin to the console width ?
