No. That should be added. I just forgot about that.

No problem! I'm sorry, but I don't know what word wrap is. My knowledge of 5250 
is still relatively basic.

Sure. But I can't take the credit for the correctness of the code since I did 
have inspiration from the tn5250j project. I only had to understand the inner 
workings and reproduce it in C. Ohh... C, I still code in C!?! :)

Ok, I can't recall but I assume you understand the problem better than me :) 
Anyway, we would have to add the content flow on "middle deletion" to the code. 
Did you implement that? I haven't looked at this.
