NAME

Text::Wrap - line wrapping to form simple paragraphs 

SYNOPSIS

        use Text::Wrap
        print wrap($initial_tab, $subsequent_tab, @text);        print fill($initial_tab, $subsequent_tab, @text);
        use Text::Wrap qw(wrap $columns $huge);
        $columns = 132;        $huge = 'die';        $huge = 'wrap';
 

DESCRIPTION

Text::Wrap::wrap() is a very simple paragraph formatter. It formats asingle paragraph at a time by breaking lines at word boundries.Indentation is controlled for the first line ($initial_tab) andall subsquent lines ($subsequent_tab) independently.

Lines are wrapped at $Text::Wrap::columns columns. $Text::Wrap::columns should be set to the full width of your output device.

When words that are longer than $columns are encountered, theyare broken up. Previous versions of wrap() die()ed instead.To restore the old (dying) behavior, set $Text::Wrap::huge to'die'.

Text::Wrap::fill() is a simple multi-paragraph formatter. It formatseach paragraph separately and then joins them together when it's done. Itwill destory any whitespace in the original text. It breaks text intoparagraphs by looking for whitespace after a newline. In other respectsit acts like wrap(). 

EXAMPLE

        print wrap("\t","","This is a bit of text that forms                 a normal book-style paragraph");
