I think it is called screen-lines.el.  Looking for it turned up
and this says:

So it would appear that there is also window-lines.el (no idea whether
that works at all nowadays).

It is not too infrequent for people to ask for this functionality on
the Emacs help list and get referred to screen-lines.el IIRC.
