I have been investigating this recently on several console editors. You want to know if there's a linewrap like wordstar's ^B (Joe's editor's jstar for example) or Pico's ^J and i don't think there is.

I was trying to find out if there was a vim's Set linebreak equivalent in any console editor so that i could use it for text word editing (as opposed to progammer's coding). The only alternative was emacs "visual line mode". All the graphical editors do it but not console. My editor of choice would be Joe as i used a wordstar editor first years ago and the keybindings are still the most efficient.

For my requirements i'm gradually getting used to vim which can do anything... but quite a bit of reading is involved. Like you i wnat to use the same editor for text as i do for answering email (i use alpine).

Are you Chris Green from Suffolk?
