Fortran Auto Fill Mode
Fortran Auto Fill mode is a minor mode which automatically splits
Fortran statements as you insert them when they become too wide.
Splitting a statement involves making continuation lines. This
splitting happens when you type SPC, RET, or TAB, and also in the
Fortran indentation commands.
`M-x fortran-auto-fill-mode' turns Fortran Auto Fill mode on if it
was off, or off if it was on. This command works the same as `M-x
auto-fill-mode' does for normal Auto Fill mode (Note: Filling.). A
positive numeric argument turns Fortran Auto Fill mode on, and a
negative argument turns it off. You can see when Fortran Auto Fill mode
is in effect by the presence of the word `Fill' in the mode line,
inside the parentheses. Fortran Auto Fill mode is a minor mode, turned
on or off for each buffer individually. Note: Minor Modes.
Fortran Auto Fill mode breaks lines at spaces or delimiters when the
lines get longer than the desired width (the value of `fill-column').
The delimiters that Fortran Auto Fill mode may break at are `,', `'',
`+', `-', `/', `*', `=', and `)'. The line break comes after the
delimiter if the variable `fortran-break-before-delimiters' is `nil'.
Otherwise (and by default), the break comes before the delimiter.
By default, Fortran Auto Fill mode is not enabled. If you want this
feature turned on permanently, add a hook function to
`fortran-mode-hook' to execute `(fortran-auto-fill-mode 1)'. *Note
