>How is this requirement different from 1 file name per line?
The display is arranged in one line with 40 cells across. there are panning
buttons across the top for moving to each block of 40 on a line. On each
side of the display are two wheels for moving up and down a line. If I know
there are a lot of file names on the screen but I'm looking for one starting
with W I can read the left column until I get to the letter I'm looking for
then I can use the panning buttons to read the other files on the line.
basically I'm just being awkward. Its just an easier way of reading a list
on a display. Similarly if I want to focus on the files on the right I like
some space at the end to make it easier to distinguish where the previous
file name ends.
