Question: how would I show that one rule (see below) trumps all other considerations? For example, my code fits in 80 columns. Always. No exceptions. Period.
So, could you add an item for column width? Perhaps:
80 - Width/Wrapping
How do you handle lines of more than 80 characters?
- 80! - There are no lines longer than 80 characters!
- 80? - Who knows? Just resize your window to see more.
- 80> - My editor can scroll, you luddite!
- 80+ - They wrap, just like you'd expect, what else?
- 80!!!! - Never, Never, Never > 80!
- 80!+ - Usually within 80 columns, but I don't mind some wrapping.
- 80!> - Usually within 80 columns, but just scroll to see the rest, sheesh.
- 80??? - Why would anyone even care about an archaic standard when you have a modern Emacs?
Then, how would I show that the 80 column rule trumps anything else (spaces may disappear to make it fit)?
