Re: mc Digest, Vol 123, Issue 1

I mark the para & do: shift/F9
IIRC that takes me to the spell-check & formatting,
where I've modified/extended the script.
Probably: translate <EOL> to <space> |
fold 72-chars.
Also I added  a 'case' to prepend "> " to each line.
IMO autowrapping is crap.
It's like auto indent.
You lose control.

I've just started using mc. I was wondering if mcedit does soft wordwrap or

just hard line wordwrap. It does paragraph formatting like nano and pico do
not from what I can see is softwrap.

When I say softwrap I mean like emac's 'visual line mode' (Vim does aswell
can't remember the command). The GUI editors e.g. Leafpad, gedit, kate all
I wanted to use mcedit as a prose text editor and so want to 'wrap' entire
