NAME ^

Template::Plugin::Wrap - Plugin interface to Text::Wrap

SYNOPSIS ^

    [% USE wrap %]
    
    # call wrap subroutine
    [% wrap(mytext, width, initial_tab,  subsequent_tab) %]
    
    # or use wrap FILTER
    [% mytext FILTER wrap(width, initital_tab, subsequent_tab) %]

DESCRIPTION ^

This plugin provides an interface to the Text::Wrap module which provides simple paragraph formatting.

It defines a wrap subroutine which can be called, passing the input text and further optional parameters to specify the page width (default: 72), and tab characters for the first and subsequent lines (no defaults).

    [% USE wrap %]
    
    [% text = BLOCK %]
    First, attach the transmutex multiplier to the cross-wired 
    quantum homogeniser.
    [% END %]
    
    [% wrap(text, 40, '* ', '  ') %]

Output:

    * First, attach the transmutex
      multiplier to the cross-wired quantum
      homogeniser.

It also registers a wrap filter which accepts the same three optional arguments but takes the input text directly via the filter input.

Example 1:

    [% FILTER bullet = wrap(40, '* ', '  ') -%]
    First, attach the transmutex multiplier to the cross-wired quantum
    homogeniser.
    [%- END %]

Output:

    * First, attach the transmutex
      multiplier to the cross-wired quantum
      homogeniser.

Example 2:

    [% FILTER bullet -%]
    Then remodulate the shield to match the harmonic frequency, taking 
    care to correct the phase difference.
    [% END %]

Output:

    * Then remodulate the shield to match
      the harmonic frequency, taking 
      care to correct the phase difference.
