A ImageMagick question

A ImageMagick question

A ImageMagick question

Has anyone worked with Text::Wrap?

Here's my problem - I have a image dimension of 125 X 125 and a graphic string that extends past the width 125 to 130 and so on.  So far I've come to the conclusion that Text::wrap is the way to go.  

Here's my attempt

use Text::Wrapper;
use POSIX qw(floor);

&Text::wrap::columns = POSIX::floor(125/5);
&text = wrap("","",&text);

The code runs without any errors, but it just doesn't work!

RE: A ImageMagick question

well without even looking at the module i'd say your problem is the following line:

&text = wrap("","",&text);

perhaps you mean:

$text = wrap("","",$text);

and if you did not want to draw in both the wrap module and the posix module you could do somthing like:

$len = int 125/5;
$text =~ s/(.{$len})(?:[^\n])/$1\n/g;

if your $len never changed as in this case and the replacement ran more than once in the program you might want to add the o flag to the substitution while you are at it.
