The fill-paragraph function in my emacs 21.4.1 (on linux) is missing
some basic understanding of multi-level indentations or enumerations.
If I am in text-mode and I type
(1) blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
    blah blah blah
    (1.1) blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
blah blah
and fill-paragraph will change it to this:
(1) blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
    blah blah blah (1.1) blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
    blah blah blah blah blah
But of course I want the correct indentation instead:
(1) blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
    blah blah blah
    (1.1) blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
blah
          blah
How can I do that? Can I modify the fill-paragraph function so that it
understands hierarchical indentations?
Basically no, you'll have to write your own, which should be very
easy. Prob 30 min to 1h for me.

My emacs version on the Mac
does it
aquaemacs or carbon emacs? what version? I can't reproduce it.

Emacs, 22.2.50.1, Carbon Version 1.6.0

Well actually, it *almost* works on the Mac version: It works fine
with stars, or with (1), (2), etc:

(1) blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
    blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
    (2) foo foo foo foo foo foo foo foo foo
        foo foo foo foo foo foo foo

The indentation is correct here on my Mac. But my linux emacs does the
stupid thing instead.

With things like (1.1), which I used in my original post, my Mac Emacs
version fails as well.

Your Mac Emacs has probably filladapt-mode installed and activated.

-ap
So, if I like the fill-paragraph behavior on my Mac Emacs better, can
I just try to locate a fill-paragraph.el file and copy it over to my
linux emacs? Or how should I proceed?

Thanks
Markus
