25.6 Filling Text

Filling text means breaking it up into lines that fit a specified width. Emacs does filling in two ways. In Auto Fill mode, inserting text with self-inserting characters also automatically fills it. There are also explicit fill commands that you can use when editing text.

Auto Fill:    Auto Fill mode breaks long lines automatically.
Fill Commands:    Commands to refill paragraphs and center lines.
Fill Prefix:    Filling paragraphs that are indented or in a comment, etc.
Adaptive Fill:    How Emacs can determine the fill prefix automatically.
