Text::WrapI18N - Line wrapping module with support for multibyte, fullwidth, and combining
characters and languages without whitespaces between words
use Text::WrapI18N qw(wrap $columns);
wrap(firstheader, nextheader, texts);
This module intends to be a better Text::Wrap module. This module is needed to support
multibyte character encodings such as UTF-8, EUC-JP, EUC-KR, GB2312, and Big5. This
module also supports characters with irregular widths, such as combining characters (which
occupy zero columns on terminal, like diacritical marks in UTF-8) and fullwidth characters
(which occupy two columns on terminal, like most of east Asian characters). Also, minimal
handling of languages which doesn't use whitespaces between words (like Chinese and
Japanese) is supported.
Like Text::Wrap, hyphenation and "kinsoku" processing are not supported, to keep
wrap(firstheader, nextheader, texts) is the main subroutine of Text::WrapI18N module to
execute the line wrapping. Input parameters and output data emulate Text::Wrap. The
texts have to be written in locale encoding.
