Re: [APD] wordwrapping
Btw, like other recently mentioned nouns having nothing to
do with plants, "carraige return" might sound like an odd
term for moving a typing cursor from an end of a line back
to the start. Typewriters had carraiges that one returned
to the start position by shoving it over with a lever --
later, electric typewriters saved untold well-chewed
calories by shoving the carraige for the typist. What a
boon to humans that was! The earliest computer displays
were printing devices that used carraiges very much like
some electric typewriters -- at least, utile line printers
came along. But by then, we just couldn't stop referring
the carraige that now is returned millions of times a day
around the world, yet doesn't exist at all.
