If you are an Emacs user,  "M-q" (M stands for left alt key) will be
very handy while reviewing paragraphs.  This key will wrap the paragraph
to the column width specified.  To specify fill-column width, use
M-x set-fill-column command.  To change an entire selected regions, use
M-x fill-region command.

Vim users can use "gq" command (:help gq).  To change an entire region,
select the area using visual block and press "gq".  To specify text width,
:set textwidth=76 (Add this to your ~/.vimrc)

I hope other editors/IDEs provide similar functionalities, please check manual
or google it.
