If so do you have a link to it somewhere?

Yes. It's `vvb-mode'. The Emacs Lisp List has it (look for
vvb-mode2.el (ported from XEmacs)).

http://www.anc.ed.ac.uk/~stephen/emacs/ell.html

I successfully set up vvb-mode to load through my .emacs for all modes, but I find it is totally unnecessary in some modes, like dired for instance.

I regularly need it in java-mode, html-helper-mode, css-mode, javascript-generic-mode etc.

I've been looking at the docs and examples and I can't figure out how I can set vvb-mode minor mode only for those modes I want it in. This is what I've currently got:

; put a vertical line in at the fill-column
(require 'vvb-mode)
(setq-default vvb-column fill-column
              vvb-sticky-p nil
              vvb-permanent-p t)
(setq-default vvb-right-on-eol-p t)
(setq-default vvb-mode 1)

How can I load it only for those modes I need it with?

Thanks in advance,
Adam
