I use gvim with
.vimrc so it shows the linenumber, plus a space, before every line.
If the document has less than 10 lines, this takes 2 columns, If it has more than 10, 3 columns and so on.
If I put
set lines=40 columns=80
.gvimrc, it will show 78 columns of code and 2 for the linenumber plus pace, or 77 + 3 and so on.
I'd like the window width to be set to 80 columns + whatever number of columns are necessary to show the linenumber.
It doesn't need to be dynamic, but I'd like to be able to read the number of lines of a given file and set
columns according. (Of course, a dynamic solution would be really neat, but not essential)
