NAME

Text::Wrap - line wrapping to form simple paragraphs

SYNOPSIS

        use Text::Wrap

        print wrap($initial_tab, $subsequent_tab, @text);

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

        $columns = 132;

DESCRIPTION

Text::Wrap is a very simple paragraph formatter. It formats a single paragraph at a time by breaking lines at word boundries. Indentation is controlled for the first line ($initial_tab) and all subsquent lines ($subsequent_tab) independently. $Text::Wrap::columns should be set to the full width of your output device.

EXAMPLE

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