NAME

App::termpub::Hyphen - determine positions for hyphens inside words

SYNOPSIS

This module implements Knuth-Liang algorithm to find positions inside words where it is possible to insert hyphens to break a line.

    use Text::Hyphen;

    my $hyphenator = new Text::Hyphen;

    print $hyphenator->hyphenate('representation');
    # prints rep-re-sen-ta-tion

This is a fork of Text::Hyphen to use hunspell dictionaries.

EXPORT

This version does not export anything and uses OOP interface. This will probably change.

hyphenate($word, [$delim])
