The default width of the left and right fringes of windows in this

removes the corresponding fringe. A value of @code{nil} stands for
the standard fringe width, which is the width needed to display the

When you use @code{frame-parameter} to query the value of either of
these two frame parameters, the return value is always an integer.
When using @code{set-frame-parameter}, passing a @code{nil} value
imposes an actual default value of 8 pixels.
The combined fringe widths must add up to an integral number of
columns, so the actual default fringe widths for the frame may be
larger than the specified values. The extra width needed to reach an
acceptable total is distributed evenly between the left and right
fringe. However, you can force one fringe or the other to a precise
width by specifying that width as a negative integer. If both widths are
negative, only the left fringe gets the specified width.
