Have you looked at the FAQ, How do I reformat a paragraph? The core module Text::Wrap may be all you need:

use strict; use warnings; use Text::Wrap qw($columns wrap); $columns = 80; print wrap('', '', <DATA>); __DATA__ The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jump +ed over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog. T +he quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jump +ed over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog. T +he quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jump +ed over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog. T +he quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jump +ed over the lazy dog.

Output:

2:13 >perl 935_SoPW.pl The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jump +ed over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog. The quick +brown fox jumped over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog +. The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumped o +ver the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog. The quick brow +n fox jumped over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog +. The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog. 2:13 >

Hope that helps,
