Wordwrapping in matrices

   I am using Mathematica 2.0 on a Macintosh II and I have not discovered 
   how to alter the wrapping within matrices given by MatrixForm.  
   Matrices with not-very-long rows come out wrapped so that is difficult 
   to read them.  If it is possible to lengthen the rows in the output,  
   then I suppose that it must be in the bible or the User's Guide but I 
   haven't found it yet.

In my init file I define the following two functions which turn off
and turn on wrapping.

wide := SetOptions[$Output,PageWidth->Infinity];
narrow := SetOptions[$Output,PageWidth->78];

You can, or course, change 78 to any width you like.
