[OS X TeX] line numbering

Friedrich, Bruno,

Bruno is probably right, but TeXShop
DOES some kind of line counting
which I frequently use:
choose a frequent word, such as "a"
and ask the Find panel to "Find all" instances of "a":
you'll get all instances with,
on the left, a mention of the "line"
in which every instance occurs;
the numbering doesn't change
if you broaden the window of the source file,
so it indeed seems to neglect wrapping as Bruno explained.

By the way, this might be a solution
to Hans van Maanen's problem
(May 31, 10.09 Paris time on my desk)

well ... if he uses TeXShop:
ask the Find Panel to change all instances of - into ¨-
it works, I tried it
(beware of commands in the preamble containing -, though!
you'll have to change them back into - 's manually,
but the error messages tell you what you should do).
