Disable auto word wrap in nano

Quite annoying when editing source code via console in nano is the automatic word wrap, which often screws up compilation of the edited file. To disable the word wrap, just edit the .nanorc in your home directory and add:

set nowrap

You can also do this when starting nano:

nano -w <file>
