Current Perl documentation can be found at perldoc.perl.org.

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:

Use Text::Wrap (part of the standard perl distribution):

    use Text::Wrap;
    print wrap("\t", '  ', @paragraphs);

The paragraphs you give to Text::Wrap should not contain embedded newlines. Text::Wrap doesn't justify the lines (flush-right).

[marioroy]: why do some posters not know to provide a good SSCCE? Nested loops?
[Corion]: marioroy: Producing good SSCCE is an acquired skill :) You have to produce bad SSCCEs for a long time until you get good. And when you get good, you don't need them that much anymore because you simply isolate the problem and then solve it ;)
[marioroy]: ... and kcott is able to provide something. Amazing.
