Using a 80xN terminal, I'm seeing that lines that are exactly 80 characters long are wrapped and the 80th character is shown on a separate line:
Is there some way to stop emacs from wrapping lines that are exactly 80 chars long? (Or rather, exactly
$COLUMNS long?). And show them on one line while still wrapping lines that are > 80 chars long... After all, they do in fact fit on an
$COLUMNS wide terminal.
A 2003 posting on help-gnu-emacs says:
Also, prior to Emacs 21, Emacs wasted a column for the "\" character that's used to indicate that a line has wrapped (Emacs 21 replaced this with a marker closer to the window border). So a line that's exactly the window's width would be wrapped -- the first n-1 characters would be on the line, then there would be a "\", and then the next line would contain the nth character.
Which describes my situation perfectly, except I'm running Emacs 24.4.1 according to
(I'm investigating returning to Emacs after many years with Vim. And yes, I want to run Emacs in the terminal, as 99% of my development time I'm editing on remote servers)
