Description Vladyslav Kosulin 2003-07-24 20:49:33 UTC
if I use
<str:wordWrap width="15"
I get the following output:
It looks like it calculates the delimiter length (10 characters in this case)
and adds it to the length of the string to be split to compare to the width+1.
I guess, this is not an expected behavior. It should treat the delimiter out of
calculations and apply width to the string itself.

This tag definition states that: this involves formatting a long String to fit
within a certain character width of page.

So, if we don't take the delimiter's length into account, the chunks won't fit
into that width.

On the other hand, it also says that: A delimiter may be passed in to put at the
end of each line.

In other words, the current definition is dubious about where the delimiter
should be include. So, I will fix this bug including a new attribute for the tag:

delimiterInside - flag indicating if the delimiter should be included in chunk
before length reaches width. Default is true.

Fixed (and new version available through nightly build)
