Text::Format is a Perl module that provides various utility functions for
formatting plain text. This module is similar to, but more powerful than,
the Text::Wrap module (in Perl core). It can format arbitrary lines into
paragraphs, center text, handle indentation and left/right margins, and
convert between tabs and spaces.
