In Emacs 21.1 and later fringes are narrow bands on both edges of the frame in
which are displayed line wrapping information (there may be other information
displayed there but I do not know what it would be, I am not a developer of
emacs) in the form of curved arrows. From what has been said in this list
previously they cannot be disabled. You may want to check the list archives
for more specific details.

Well... I am new to the list as well as to emacs. (Just one year
old.) So, what are "fringes"?
(9) I will not include a self-destruct mechanism unless absolutely
necessary. If it is necessary, it will not be a large red button
labelled "Danger: Do Not Push". The big red button marked "Do Not
Push" will instead trigger a spray of bullets on anyone stupid
enough to disregard it. Similarly, the ON/OFF switch will not
clearly be labelled as such. - Peter Anspach in "The Top 100 Things
