The code formatting using the github flavor is a great thing for my manual writings.

But the horizontal scrollbar in wide code segments naturally doesn't work in PDF, RTF, ... output.

Is there a switch to wrap wide lines of code for printable output.

    You can do this by adding some custom CSS.

    pre {
                white-space: pre-wrap;
                white-space: pre-line;
