The lack of this is one of the most annoying features of Mac
style text editing. One of the things I frequently use in vi
is a command like
to set the right margin at 72 chars from here to the end of the text, or
to set the right margin at 50 chars from here to the next end of paragraph.
(Sorry to violate the rule that in experiments one should vary only one
parameter at a time, but I hope these are clear.)
So I concur with Suresh.
Witticism: In theory there is no difference between theory and practice,
but in practice there is.
