That works! Thanks for the quick reply. I changed the elsif code to

print "| $_ |\n" for map substr( $_ . ' 'x$menuWidth, 0, $menuWidth ), + $text =~ m[(.{1,$menuWidth})\s+]g;

    As Athanasius pointed out above, you need to change that to:

    print "| $_ |\n" for map substr( $_ . ' 'x$menuWidth, 0, $menuWidth ), + $text =~ m[(.{1,$menuWidth})(?:\s+|$)]g; #..................................................................... +.............................^^^^^^^^^

    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
