Or a message could contain information about whether lines should be
filled and word-wrapped. Like this message you're reading, for example.
It's text/plain format=flowed (RFC 3676). The English text is marked to
be filled and word-wrapped on display. The C program at the end is not.
Unfortunately, not many mail readers implement text/plain format=flowed.
Thunderbird does; Mutt has partial support; an obscure mail reader named
Trojita does. There may be others I don't know about.
Here's a picture of how Thunderbird displays this message:
int main(int argc, char *argv, char *envp)
