80-column text reflow - Hanlin V3
I'm a cheap ass and only buy a few eBooks. Thankfully, all the Linux man pages and Howtos, as well as many computer documents, are available free in ASCII. Unfortunately, they're all in 80-column text.
Does anyone have a simple script for changing the wrapping? I was thinking maybe sed could replace double newlines with special character x, then remove single newlines and replace x with newlines.
I figure smart people have solved similar problems with all the subsequent problems. If anyone knows something like that, I'd appreciate being pointed in the right direction.

This worked for me:
1. Open the file in vim
2. Type ":%s/\n\n/#/g"
3. Type ":%s/\n//g"
4. Type ":%s/#/^M/g"
# is the character you choose to mark a double newline
^M is obtained by typing "CTRL-V" and "ENTER"
Hope this works for you,
