Line wrapping module
TextWrapI18N intends to be a better TextWrap 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 TextWrap, hyphenation and “kinsoku” processing are not supported, to keep simplicity.
