NAME

Text::Wrap::Smart - Wrap text into chunks of (mostly) equal length

SYNOPSIS

 use Text::Wrap::Smart qw(wrap_smart);

 $text = "..."; # random length

 # example options
 %options = (
             no_split => 1,
             max_msg_size => 160,
            );

 @chunks = wrap_smart($text, \%options);

DESCRIPTION

Text::Wrap::Smart was primarly developed to split an overly long SMS message into chunks of mostly equal size. The distribution's wrap_smart() may nevertheless be suitable for other purposes.

FUNCTIONS

wrap_smart

 @chunks = wrap_smart($text [, { options } ]);

options may contain the no_split option indicating that words shall not be broken up which indicates 'fuzzy wrapping` (if no_split is undefined, 'exact wrapping` will be applied). max_msg_size sets the character length boundary for each chunk emitted.
