I don't think so. (This is annoying when viewing many Windows readme files that are saved using Notepad, which DOES have it.) You end up having to do ifill-paragraph on the whole document (or 'restyle-buffer') to read the lines. That does modify the buffer though.
There is a buffer mode called "wrap" which has nothing to do with viewing; it turns on word wrapping so if you type past the wrap point it will reformat (fill) the paragraph.
Maybe I'm wrong and it exists and I just don't know about it; it's happened before... I'm using version 20090909.

so there isn't a softwrap feature?
