Text::WrapI18N version 0.06 =========================== This is a module which intends to substitute Text::Wrap, which supports internationalized texts including: - multibyte encodings such as UTF-8, EUC-JP, EUC-KR, GB2312, and Big5, - fullwidth characters like east Asian characters which appear in UTF-8, EUC-JP, EUC-KR, GB2312, Big5, and so on, - combining characters like diacritical marks which appear in UTF-8, ISO-8859-11 (aka TIS-620), and so on, and - languages which don't use whitespaces between words, like Chinese and Japanese. The text is to be given in locale encoding, not always in UTF-8. (Of course locale encoding is UTF-8 in UTF-8 locales.) $Text::WrapI18N::columns is available like $Text::Wrap::columns. Also, $Text::WrapI18N::separator is available. However, $Text::WrapI18N::huge, $Text::WrapI18N::break, $Text::WrapI18N::tabstop, and $Text::WrapI18N::unexpand are not available yet. This module is originally written for "debconf", a standard configuration system of Debian. Prerequisites ------------- This needs Text::CharWidth module.
