NAME
       Text::WrapI18N - Line wrapping module with support for multibyte, fullwidth, and combining
       characters and languages without whitespaces between words

SYNOPSIS
	 use Text::WrapI18N qw(wrap $columns);
	 wrap(firstheader, nextheader, texts);

DESCRIPTION
       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
       simplicity.

       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.
