You might know about a not so remote past, in which computer folks struggled for having 80 columns. You might also know how, even nowadays, some programmers tend to restrict code lines length as a way to increase readability.
I personally feel slightly annoyed when a document (e.g. an email) that carefully avoids exceeding the sacred 80 columns limit, renders horribly anyway in your hand-held device, forcing you to rotate it landscape.
I have a 76 column cap in my
~/.vimrc, but I start to think I should make it 40~ish for email composition (invoked from
mutt) so that it doesn’t render horribly in mobile mail clients.
Do you have any special habit to tackle this problem?
