The latest push is an experiment with a couple toggle commands, nothing set in stone here.
swrap was clunky to type, and used all the time, so I reverted back to sw, search with wrap, and also sw+ and sw-.
So if a script knows you will want search with wrap enabled
this also has the advantage that the absolute commands don't print any output, and you usually don't want a lot of output from your running script.
The toggle version sw still prints the message because you might not remember where you were, you might want it to tell you search with wrap or search without wrap.
This is a general pattern.
This was my vision 20 years ago: edbrowse tells you what you need to know and nothing more.
Another one implemented is js+ and js-,
If we like this style I can implement the rest.
It's pretty much boiler plate programming.
