NAME

       dotextwrap - line-folding (text-wrapping) filter program with i18n support

SYNOPSIS

       dotextwrap [<columns> [<tabs> [<header1> [<header2>]]]]

DESCRIPTION

       dotextwrap is a small filter to wrap text or fold lines.  Text-wrapping means formatting a
       given text by adding newline characters at proper positions so  that  the  text  fits  the
       given width (or number of columns) of the terminal.

       Since this is a filter, it reads from standard input and writes to standard output.

       Unlike other softwares, this supports internationalization.

       At first, this automatically detects the current LC_CTYPE locale and follows it.

       Next, this supports multibyte encodings such as UTF-8 and EUC-JP.  In multibyte encodings,
       one character consists from one or more bytes.

       Third, this supports fullwidth characters such as CJK Ideogram,  Katakana,  Hiragana,  and
       Hangul.  These characters occupy two columns per one character on the terminal.

       Forth,  this  supports  combining  characters  such as Thai and accents for Latin scripts.
       These characters occupy zero columns per one character on the terminal.

       Fifth, this supports languages which do not  use  whitespaces  between  words.   In  these
       languages,  lines  can  be  folded  at  any places with small amount of exception (such as
       before commas).
