Soft word wrap in Emacs
I was editing some text with emacs and finally got fed up with the choice between “auto-fill-mode” (spray hard newlines into my file to word-wrap) and “suck” (no word-wrap, long lines). Fortunately for me, not only is there a minor mode to implement this feature, but GNU Emacs 22 (the version I was using) bundles it. It’s called “longlines-mode”, and I am grateful for Soft word wrap for long lines because it was the search hit that explained to me the existence of the mode, its name, and how to get it (in my case, “it’s included”). Finally Emacs has something every single other text editor I’ve used since QEdit has had.
