### Long lists in LaTeX

The ACM transactions style file contains a great environment called "longitem" that can turn your too-long bulleted list into something just right. Here's what you can put into your LaTeX file to get it:
\newenvironment{longlist}
{\begin{list}{---}{
\setlength{\rightmargin}{0in}
\setlength{\leftmargin}{0in}
\settowidth{\labelwidth}{---}
\setlength{\itemindent}{\parindent}
