Word-wrap in Eclipse

I was amazed to see that word-wrapping does not come as standard in Eclipse and that it has been on the feature request list for years. I know that your code shouldn’t be longer than the width of the page but I wanted to use Eclipse to edit my xml and I frequently have large chunks of text content that are a pain to work with if they don’t wrap. After some rooting around I found this plugin – ‘Virtual word wrap’. Once installed, you can turn wrapping on and off with a right-click. I read that it’s a little basic and buggy but it serves my purposes well. Here is the link:-
