Of course. This is a new low, though... I mean, you expect programmers to be incapable of putting themselves in their users' shoes, but this one can't even put himself in his OWN shoes. I doubt that he's ever seen code samples formatted with "carriage-return arrow icons" to indicate wrapped lines, and I KNOW he'd be annoyed if those arrow symbols were embedded in text he tried to copy-and-paste from code samples... Yet he came up with this boneheaded idea anyway. As others have said, indentation alone will usually be enough to indicate to your readers that a long line has wrapped. If the code samples themselves contain multiple levels of indentation, you may need to slightly adjust your vertical spacing so that the pieces of a wrapped line are grouped more tightly than unwrapped lines. And... If a visual wrapped-line indicator MUST be included, it'd be best to use whatever character the programming language uses (e.g., backslash for C or C++), so the code has a chance of working if your reader copies it straight from the docs into his or her program. -Andrew === Andrew Warren - awarren at synaptics.com === Synaptics, Inc - Santa Clara, CA
