$fill-bullet contains the set of characters which are classified as bullet markers for fill-paragraph(2). If these characters are encountered in the first $fill-bullet-len characters of the paragraph AND the character is followed by a SPACE or a tab character then the user is given the option to indent to the right of the bullet.
$fill-bullet-len determines the maximum depth into the paragraph (in characters) the filling routines should search for a bullet character. The default value is 15. Note that the paragraph starts at the first non-white space character. e.g. to detect "xviii) " as a bullet then the bullet length must be set to at least 6 to detect the bullet character ")".
Examples of filled bullet paragraphs are shown as follows, based on the default $fill-bullet character set.
