George,

That was supposed to be in Mike's writeup.

Moreover, he forgot to mention that "even" distribution implies an inbuilt
bias toward larger sections on the bottom.  (Apologies to Michael Surato,
who will need to use the fuller form of the code to get folds his preferred
way.)

Finally, though Mike and I didn't discuss this prior to his post, I believe
that the bias toward larger folds on the bottom should be done with a
recursive algorithm that first divides braille lines into even sets as many
times as possible, in case the first fold is to be done at the center.

Excellent, Mike.

But could we PLEASE have an additional parameter to enable the optional
inclusion of a fold line.  My guess is most would prefer dots 2,5.

George.

I propose making the following changes to the operation of the [folds] code:

- The code will, by default, automatically try to place folds evenly
throughout a page.  For a 25-line document, fold lines will be placed on
lines 8 and 17.


- If numeric parameters are specified beyond the existing two, then they
will specify the lines on which the folds should occur.  If the second
parameter is 2, indicating that there should be two fold lines for each
fold, then optional following parameters will specify the first line of each
fold.  If [folds2:1:9:18] is inserted, then folds will be inserted on lines
9 and 18.

-Mike
