= 2013/05/23 Change module 'NAME' = 2013/05/22 Typos = 2013/04/26 Minor test suite fixes - bug 81698. Fixed bug 79766 -- an extraneous "=" in a regex. Changed the license to qualify as an "open source" license. = 2012/08/18 Packaging fix. Minor documentation fixes. = 2012/08/15 Minor fixes to test suites. Added back versions to support old versions of perl. = 2009/04/17 Added support for Unicode combining characters to both Text::Tabs and Text::Wrap, plus a new test suite for each of these new functionalities. --tchrist = 2009/03/05 Test improvements from Dave Mitchel sent back in 2005... Added code to increase $columns if it's not big enough to accommodate the subsequent tab. Minor documentation fixes from David Landgren <david at landgren.net>. Use warnings::warnif instead of just warn for columns < 2. Appled per request of Rafael Garcia-Suarez <rgarciasuarez at gmail.com>. = 2006/11/17 Text::Tabs can handle newlines now so the BUGS section has been removed per request from Aristotle Pagaltzis. = 2006/07/11 Further bomb-proofing to pass more tests: Dan Jacobson <jidanni at jidanni dot org> found another way to generate a "this shouldn't happen". = 2006/07/05 Made documentation and code changes to address perlbug: https://rt.perl.org/rt3/Ticket/Display.html?id=30229 Added in changes from the distributed-with-perl version. This took care of perlbug: https://rt.perl.org/rt3/Ticket/Display.html?id=34902 It also took care of suggestion from Matthijs Bomhoff <matthijs at bomhoff dot nl>. Made documentation changes (added EXAMPLES) as per a suggestion from Gabor Blasko <gblasko at cs dot columbia dot edu> belg4mit at MIT dot EDU reported that $columns==1 die'd. No longer. Added tests for each bug report. = 2005/08/24 Added $separator2 and tests for $separator and $separator2 Aristotle Pagaltzis <pagaltzis at gmx.de> contributed a new version of expand() that is faster. Jarkko Hietaniemi <jhi at cc.hut.fi> sent in perl change #17917 which fixed a bug in wrap. Matthew Durante <matthew_durante at hotmail.com> and Don Buchholz <don at truedisk.com> sent in a doc patches. = 2001/09/29 Philip Newton <Philip.Newton at gmx.net> sent in a clean patch that added support for defining words differently; that prevents Text::Wrap from untainting strings; and that fixes a documentation bug. So that fill.t can be used in the version included in the perl distribution, fill.t no longer uses File::Slurp. Both Sweth Chandramouli <svc at sweth.net> and Drew Degentesh <ddegentesh at daed.com> both objected to the automatic unexpand that Text::Wrap does on its results. Drew sent a patch which has been integrated. Way back in '97, Joel Earl <jrearl at VNET.IBM.COM> asked that it be possible to use a line separator other than \n when adding new lines. There is now support for that. = 2001/01/30 Bugfix by Michael G Schwern <schwern at pobox.com>: don't add extra whitespace when working one an array of input (as opposed to a single string). Performance rewrite: use m/\G/ rather than s///. You can now specify that words that are too long to wrap can simply overflow the line. Feature requested by James Hoagland <hoagland at SiliconDefense.com> and by John Porter <jdporter at min.net>. Documentation changes from Rich Bowen <Rich at cre8tivegroup.com>. = 1998/11/29 Combined Fill.pm into Wrap.pm. It appears there are versions of Wrap.pm with fill in them. = 1998/11/28 Over the last couple of years, many people sent in various rewrites of Text::Wrap. I should have done something about updating it long ago. If someone wants to take it over from me, discuss it in perl-porters. I'll be happy to hand it over. Anyway, I have a bunch of people to thank. I didn't use what any of them sent in, but I did take ideas from all of them. Many sent in complete new implamentations. Ivan Brawley <ibrawley at awadi.com.au> Jacqui Caren <Jacqui.Caren at ig.co.uk> Jeff Kowalski <jeff.kowalski at autodesk.com> Allen Smith <easmith at beatrice.rutgers.edu> Sullivan N. Beck <sbeck at cise.ufl.edu> The end result is a very slight change in the API. There is now an additional package variable: $Text::Wrap::huge. When $huge is set to 'die' then long words will cause wrap() to die. When it is set to 'wrap', long words will be wrapped. The default is 'wrap'. <shout>LONG WORDS WILL NOW BE WRAPPED BY DEFAULT</shout>. This is a change in behavior. At the bottom of Text::Wrap, there was a function (fill()) sitting there unpublished. There was a note that Tim Pierce had a faster version, but a search on CPAN failed to turn it up. Text::Fill is now available.
