in reply to Wrap eats newlines

eznoh, not to be mean, but RTFM! From the description of Text::Wrap, "It will destory any whitespace in the original text." That includes the extra newline character. Now, if you use  Text::Wrap::wrap() individually on each paragraph, you can then add the extra newline yourself.

    I did RTFM, I guess I should have asked, is there an easy way to do what I want or a different function to use? Thanks!

      Since you know that Text::Wrap eats the whitespace, you can put the newline(s) back yourself.
