    Lorem  ipsum dolor  sit   amet, consectetur  adipiscing
    elit,  sed do eiusmod  tempor incididunt  ut  labore et
    dolore  magna  aliqua.  Ut  enim ad minim  veniam, quis
    nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex
    ea  commodo consequat.  Duis    aute  irure    dolor in
    reprehenderit in voluptate  velit esse cillum dolore eu
    fugiat    nulla  pariatur.    Excepteur  sint  occaecat
    cupidatat  non proident,    sunt in culpa   qui officia
    deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.


    See word-wrap for additional options beyond the following.


    Type: number

    Default: 55

    Set the maximum width for the justified text.


    Type: number

    Default: 0

    Add the specified number of spaces (left padding) before each line in the given string.


    Type: function

    Default: a pseudo-random function is used to provide the appearance of randomization. The purpose of this is to ensure that whitespace doesn't appear to be somewhat "aligned" in columns on the left or right side of the text (which is distracting to readers), whilst also making the result technically predictable so that you're not getting a different result every time you call the "justified" function.


    Type: boolean|function

    Default: false

    The last line in the string is not justified by default.
