Today I printed an eclipse help article and read it. At page 10 out 13 I found what I was interested in. Some code. But the dabbler who wrote the code used a line width of of something like 94 columns or so and of course the printed version does not show the end of such crazy long rows. So the thing in the article that I was actually interested in was lost when I printed it.
Now if only people could keep their code within a limited number of columns. That would not only make it possible to print the code, but also read the code on screen without having to scroll horizontally.
