Documentation Build Status

This Julia package allows to wrap long lines of text to fit within a given width.

Quick example

julia> text = "This text is going to be wrapped around in lines no longer than 20 characters.";

julia> println_wrapped(text, width=20)
This text is going
to be wrapped around
in lines no longer
than 20 characters.

The other exported functions are wrap (returns a string) and print_wrapped. See the documentation for more advanced settings.


To install the module, use Julia's package manager: start pkg mode by pressing ] and then enter:

(v1.3) pkg> add TextWrap

Dependencies will be installed automatically. The module can then be loaded like any other Julia module:

julia> using TextWrap
