The HARDWRAP package

This package facilitates wrapping plain text to a specific number of
characters per line, while breaking lines by words rather than, as done by
TeX, by characters.

The primary use for these facilities is to aid the generation of messages
sent to the log file or console output to display messages to the user.
Package authors may also find this useful when writing out arbitary text
to an external file.

For more information see the documentation hardwrap.pdf.

hard­wrap – Hard wrap text to a cer­tain char­ac­ter length

The pack­age fa­cil­i­tates wrap­ping text to a spe­cific char­ac­ter width, break­ing lines by words rather than, as done by , by char­ac­ters.

The pri­mary use for these fa­cil­i­ties is to aid the gen­er­a­tion of mes­sages sent to the log file or con­sole out­put to dis­play mes­sages to the user. Pack­age au­thors may also find this use­ful when writ­ing out ar­bitary text to an ex­ter­nal file.
