Ok, there is the nice module PrettyTables, but it seems that I am looking for something else.
I would like to structure my text output regarding column width and I would like to plot separation
lines. At the end I gave up to search for a suitable module and coded something that goes into the
right direction. Below I share my code and I am interested, if there is a package available that does
txt_in = string("Some time ago, I had a dream, it was happy it was lasting, it was free! ", "And now in life, oh, can't you see how we can make that dream into reality? ", "Oh, the music, it was playing, oh, the firelight, it was dancing. ", "All the children they were singing. All the people they were loving. ", "From: Chick Corea – \"Sometime Ago/La Fiesta\"" ) function h_line(;column_width::Integer = 100, char_::Char = '-') println(string(char_, " ", char_^(column_width - 6), " ", char_)) return nothing end function text_block(txt_in::String = ""; column_width::Integer = 100) idx_frst = 1 idx_last = 1 length_txt = length(txt_in) n_lines = Integer(ceil(length_txt/column_width)) for i_lines = 1 : n_lines global idx_frst, idx_last, txt_in, column_width idx_last = findlast(" ", txt_in[range(1, min(idx_frst + column_width, length_txt) ) ] ) if i_lines < n_lines println(txt_in[idx_frst:idx_last]) else println(txt_in[idx_frst:end]) end idx_frst = idx_last + 1 end return nothing end h_line() text_block(txt_in) h_line(char_ = '#')
