;;; Commentary:

;; This file contains helpful functions for customizing the appearance
;; of the fringe.

;; The code is influenced by scroll-bar.el and avoid.el.  The author
;; gratefully acknowledge comments and suggestions made by Miles
;; Bader, Eli Zaretski, Richard Stallman, Pavel Janík and others which
;; improved this package.

  "*Specify appearance of fringes on all frames.
This variable can be nil (the default) meaning the fringes should have
the default width (8 pixels), it can be an integer value specifying
the width of both left and right fringe (where 0 means no fringe), or
a cons cell where car indicates width of left fringe and cdr indicates
width of right fringe (where again 0 can be used to indicate no
fringe).
To set this variable in a Lisp program, use `set-fringe-mode' to make
it take real effect.
Setting the variable with a customization buffer also takes effect.
If you only want to modify the appearance of the fringe in one frame,
you can use the interactive function `toggle-fringe'"
