wordwrapWraps a string to a given number of characters

Description

wordwrap ( string $str [, int $width = 75 [, string $break = "\n" [, bool $cut = FALSE ]]] ) : string

Wraps a string to a given number of characters using a string break character.

Parameters

str

The input string.

width

The number of characters at which the string will be wrapped.

break

The line is broken using the optional break parameter.

cut

If the cut is set to TRUE, the string is always wrapped at or before the specified width. So if you have a word that is larger than the given width, it is broken apart. (See second example). When FALSE the function does not split the word even if the width is smaller than the word width.

Return Values

Returns the given string wrapped at the specified length.
