Text::NWrap - a simple text wrapping module


    use Text::NWrap;

    $NWrap::columns = 132;
    NWrap::wrap('    ','',@text);


Text::NWrap is a simple interface to Text::Format. If you want more functionality just use Text::Format. Text::NWrap is meant to replace Text::Wrap. Its interface is basically identical to Text::Wrap's. However, nothing is exported by default and it does not call die under any circumstance.

wrap $firstIndent, $bodyIndent, @text

Wrap @text using $firstIndent for the first line's indent and $bodyIndent for the indentation of the body of the paragraph.


Lets you set the width of the paragraph. Default is 72 characters wide.


    use Text::NWrap;

    print NWrap::wrap('','',"hello world this is some silly example",
            "and some more text that should explain the use");

    use Text::NWrap qw(wrap $columns);

    $columns = 20;
    wrap("\t",'',"some text that should be wrapped");
