Block of text method to make "..."

What action view method turns this:

asdf asdf aslkj flkjasdfljf lkasdf
asdlfkjsd flkajsdf ldkffljasf aslkfj
asldfkjasdf nlfkajlskf lasdfkjaslfdj
asl;fkaslf asdlfsalf

Into this:

asdf asdf aslkj flkjasdfljf lkasdf …

Thanks!

assert_xpath, assert_javascript, & assert_ajax

truncate does this, but i does not split by word, only by No. of
Characters:
http://api.rubyonrails.org/classes/ActionView/Helpers/TextHelper.html#M000615

if you need it p split at word boundaries, have a look at this code
snippet, you can use it as a custom Helper Method:

Thanks for that snippit. I have been wanting to figure out how to do
this
and have been just too lazy to do it.
