Pasting large code without forced wrapping

I am trying to paste a very large portion of code, which has been via Mathematica. The problem is that MATLAB breaks the code at the vertical line in the editor and adds \ to show where. There are too many of these to make manual removal of these \ feasible.
How can I get MATLAB to let me simply paste-as-is?

Those backslashes are a feature of Mathematica, they have nothing to do with MATLAB.
"With a single backslash at the end of a line, the Wolfram Language ignores the line break:"
"By default code copied from the FrontEnd is formatted with backslashes added at the ends of lines."
Why would MATLAB would insert a Mathematica syntactical feature that has no meaning in MATLAB?

MATLAB does not do this. Presumably Mathematica is putting it onto the clipboard this way. You can confirm this as Rik notes by pasting into another text editor such as Notepad.
