msfconsole should be pleasant at 80 characters #4776
Option descriptions often look all ragged and horrible at a column width of 80. For example:
Desired screenshot (approximated):
This example is a little silly because of the very long default
At any rate, the actual is okay for grepping (if you're into that sort of thing) and copy-pasting the text, but terrible for screencasting or actually using msfconsole and trying to read it sanely.
I could have sworn there was a prettifier for this sort of thing already, but now I don't see it. @kernelsmith? Pre-emptively assigning to you b/c I could have sworn you had something for this.
Such a setting would need to be optional, or else it ruins greppability. Or, remove the table view entirely? That'd be radical.
Iirc, kernelsmith had lots of fun with console formatting a few years back. There some strange idiosyncrasies afoot in this area, or were anyway back then. Still, no danger is anyone and everyone hacking on it - we will know right quick if things break at this tier.
