vim text wrap problem


Hi,

I've been trying to set the textwidth so that
the line breaks automatically. So I set for
example

:set textwidth=10

and tried typing but the line continued after
10 characters.

my .vimrc is the following:
-------------------
set showmode
syntax enable

"Tab spacing
set tabstop=4
set shiftwidth=4

set autoindent

"Configure the Backspace to work in insert mode
set backspace=indent,eol,start
-----------------------------
I hope someone can help.

many thanks,
Ivan

Essentially I'm looking for a function which is equivalent
to ESC+q in emacs.
