;;; Commentary:

;; Some text editors save text files with long lines, and they
;; automatically break these lines at whitespace, without actually
;; inserting any newline characters.  When doing `M-q' in Emacs, you
;; are inserting newline characters.  Longlines mode provides a file
;; format which wraps the long lines when reading a file and unwraps
;; the lines when saving the file.  It can also wrap and unwrap
;; automatically as editing takes place.

;; Special thanks to Rod Smith for many useful bug reports.

;;; Code:

(defgroup longlines nil

(defcustom longlines-auto-wrap t
  "*Non-nil means long lines are automatically wrapped after each command.
Otherwise, you can perform filling using `fill-paragraph' or
`auto-fill-mode'.  In any case, the soft newlines will be removed
when the file is saved to disk."

(defcustom longlines-wrap-follows-window-size nil
  "*Non-nil means wrapping and filling happen at the edge of the window.
Otherwise, `fill-column' is used, regardless of the window size.  This
does not work well when the buffer is displayed in multiple windows
with differing widths."
