Subject: Re[2]: Word Wrap text viewer

Re[2]: Word Wrap text viewer

A patch that looks like this is better than the current setup (at
least for some of us)

Submit it.


inc> Hi,

inc> I'm the one who came up with the initial implementation of
inc> the text viewer. A few people requested the word-wrap option but
inc> it is not as simple as is sounds because we do not actually store
inc> the whole file in memory but only a 1 or 2k buffer.

inc> I spent a little time trying to implement this option but
inc> didn't submit a patch because I was not really hapy with the
inc> result. The problem in my implementation was that the wrap point
inc> was not allways constant.

inc> eg: The line
inc> This is a sample line
inc> would wrap in
inc> This is a sample
inc> line
inc> while scrolling down,
inc> This
inc> is a sample line
inc> while scrolling up.

inc> I probably still have the code for that so if you think
inc> this behaviour is acceptable I can submit a patch.
