#231 Justification and wordwrap don't do well with two spaces bet

Jari Aalto

Cf. Debian bug http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=389410

If this has been fixed in later versions please let me know.


Package: joe
Version: 3.5-1
Severity: normal

The documentation says that with -french off, Joe assumes two spaces after
a period for word wrapping operations. I don't know what this affects but
it doesn't affect the ones I want it to (which the description implies it
should). Try taking this text:

Here I am.
There's another.

Put your cursor on it and hit whatever you have bound to reflow the
paragraph (fmtblk). I end up with one space in "am. There".

And at word wrap there's a similar problem. Type a sentence that goes all
the way out to the margin and ends there with a period. Type two spaces.
When you type the capital to start the next sentence, it will wrap to the
next line... but leave a trailing space at the end of the previous line!
