When running a node with roslaunch and loading filepaths into the rosparam server, the terminal output clips the end of the filepath as shown:

* /driver/transforms_path: /home/matt/rosdat...
* /driver/alg_settings_path: /home/matt/rosdat...
* /driver/settings_dir: /home/matt/rosdat...
* /rosdistro: kinetic 
* /rosversion: 1.12.14

How do I force ROS to show the full, unclipped filepath? Seeing the full path makes debugging faster and easier.

You can't, as it isn't supported.

The code which prints the summary (as that's what it's called), is here. Notice how max_length is hard-coded to 20.

You could consider proposing a PR (similar to ros/ros_comm#1655) which adds a command line option for this.

Ah, I was afraid that might be the answer. Thanks a lot!
