This seems to assume that there are \n
characters in the strings. I am using -wrap => 1,
to get automatic line wraps, and I don't think that it inserts \n
in the string. It just displays it wrapped without altering the string itself, so I don't think my $nLines = scalar split "\n", $text;
would work. But I've been wrong before...
Of course I could perhaps query the width of each column, use a monospace font and do the line wraps myself with \n
, in which case of course I would know how many lines each cell is wrapped into, and I could set the height accordingly. But that would essentially mean that I'm rewriting the functionality of -wrap
from scratch. There should be a better way - to be honest, I don't really see the usefulness of -wrap
if there is no height auto-adjustment functionality. Instead of hanging off the cell to the right, text just ends up hanging off the top and bottom.
