The width of the text before wrapping to a new line.

Default: \n

The string to use at the end of each line.

Example:

wrap(str, {newline: '\n\n'});

options.escape

Type: function

Default: function(str){return str;}

An escape function to run on each line after splitting them.

Example:

  escape: function(string){
    return xmlescape(string);
  }
});

options.trim

options.cut

Break a word between any two letters when the word is longer than the specified width.
