in thread Line size in a text widget

I should have clarified...sorry about that. This is a text box where the text wraps to the next line at 30 characters.

    not tested, just an idea...
    use Text::Autoformat; my ($allTheText) = shift; ## all your text to format my (@lins); ## your resulting lines my ($widthTxt) = 30; ## your line width... { my ($formated)=autoformat($allTheText, { left=>5, right=>$widthTxt +, all=>1}) if ($allTheText); foreach (split(/\n+/,$formated)) { push(@lins,$_); ## array w/lines of max.30chrs.wth. } }

[choroba]: The problem was bigger, as the test tried to call a method that didn't exist anymore
[marinersk]: :: ducking ::
[choroba]: because, someone renamed the method, but didn't notice it was used in the test, as the test was skipped
[marinersk]: Well, if the method doesn't exist, it would be hard to pass the test.
[choroba]: later, someone removed the new method, as all its usage places were safe, but didn't notice the test still used the old name
[choroba]: fortunately, it wasn't that hard to replace the method and fix a few remaining failures due to the changes we did to the codebase over the years
[marinersk]: choroba Sounds like a process improvement opportunity; tests may not all need to be run, but they should all be compiled with perl -c before check-in/promotion happens.
[choroba]: so, now I have the test, so I can start making changes in the code. Back to the original ticket, yay!
[marinersk]: I definitely love it when my $current_taask=& taskPop(); if ($current_task eq $original_task) { } is true.
[marinersk]: s/taask/task/g;
