Hello, In a block of text if the last character of the block is a full colon: (at the end of the last word in the block only) Followed by at least one empty line. The lines of text before it (in the same block) will not be wrapped to 72 characters. regards, Chirayu

I think I must be misunderstanding your report. The following test code works fine for me (using Text::Autoformat 1.12): use Text::Autoformat; print "Autoformat $Text::Autoformat::VERSION\n\n"; print autoformat <<EOT; This is a block of text with a colon at the very end and Chirayu claims it doesn't wrap correctly: This is supposed to test that. EOT If this is not the situation you meant could you send me a variation on it that illustrates the problem you're reporting? Thanks, Damian

Hi, This variation does not work. use Text::Autoformat; print "Autoformat $Text::Autoformat::VERSION\n\n"; my $text = <<EOT; This is a block of text with a colon at the very end and Chirayu claims it doesn't wrap correctly: This is supposed to test that. EOT print autoformat $text, { left => 4, all => 1 }; Without the all => 1 the first block is fine, but when set the first block is not indented. The second block is treated as expected Thanks Struan

Actually, a colon in the text in general seems to have unpredictable effects. From what I can tell from poking about it's an effect of the ignore_headers functionality. As such it only applies to lines that aren't indented and have a colon in them. Hence a quick work around is to pass something like ignore => qr/^$/ as an argment. Perhaps some sort of note in the docs to this effect would be handy. Cheers Struan

I've turned off the default mail-header-ignorance in the next release. Instead there's now a C<< mail=>1 >> option that turns it on specifically. Thanks again for the useful feedback. Damian
