CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



    use Text::LineFold;
    $lf = Text::LineFold->new();
   
    # Fold lines
    $folded = $lf->fold($string, PLAIN);
    $indented = $lf->fold(  x 8,   x 4, $string);

    # Unfold lines
    $unfolded = $lf->unfold($string, FIXED);

Surplus SPACEs and horizontal tabs at end of line are removed, newline sequences are replaced by that specified by Newline option and newline is appended at end of text if it does not exist. Horizontal tabs are treated as tab stops according to TabSize option.

By the first style, following options may be specified for METHOD argument.
‘‘FIXED’’ Lines preceded by ">" won’t be folded. Paragraphs are separated by empty line.
‘‘FLOWED’’ "Format=Flowed; DelSp=Yes" formatting defined by RFC 3676.
‘‘PLAIN’’ Default method. All lines are folded.

Second style is similar to wrap() in Text::Wrap. All lines are folded. INITIAL_TAB is inserted at beginning of paragraphs and SUBSEQUENT_TAB at beginning of other broken lines.
