Hi all,
        Is there any gem or plugin for "word wrapping".


The reason is I'm trying to generate a pdf from my application. There
are issues when I am trying to display long strings  with no spaces. A
word wrapper should solve the issue I guess.

Any help would be appreciated.

 Thanks

Why don't you write your own routine to wrap text?  Here is a simple
one.

def wrap_text(txt, col = 80)
  txt.gsub(/(.{1,#{col}})( +|$\n?)|(.{1,#{col}})/,
    "\\1\\3\n")
end

Have a look at

for explanation.
