In stating these matters, I speak an open and disinterested language, dictated by no passion but that of humanity. To me, who have not only refused offers, because I thought them improper, but have declined rewards I might with reputation have accepted, it is no wonder that meanness and imposition appear disgustful. Independence is my happiness, and I view things as they are, without regard to place or person; my country is the world, and my religion is to do good.
Thomas Paine, Rights of Man (1737-1809)
Here is a quick tip for the people, like me, being driven mental working with long lines and not being able to word wrap them in Eclipse: install a 3rd party plugin named AhtiK Eclipse WordWrap from http://ahtik.com/eclipse-update/ in your IDE.
To do so, in Eclipse, go to the Help menu, then Install new software, and add a new software site to it, http://ahtik.com/eclipse-update/,
Click on Next, make sure that the item to be installed is in the com.ahtik.wordrap package, and then press Next again,
As it is an unsigned plugin, you might get a warning similar to the one in the screenshot below – you might want review the package name again, and press ok if you are happy with the fact that the plugin is unsigned, as in, you trust that it came from the correct location and not from a man-in-the-middle, you trust that this is the correct package file, and you trust the publisher – for more information on the plugin and the author, please refer to the plugin author’s website at http://ahtik.com/blog/projects/eclipse-word-wrap/.
Click Word Warp, and your editor should be word wrapping long lines for you now. Un-clicking Word Wrap will deactivate word wrapping and bring your editor back to it’s normal state.
For news and more information about the plugin, please refer to AhtiK Eclipse WordWrap‘s official website at http://ahtik.com/blog/projects/eclipse-word-wrap/.
