methods
var wrap = require('wordwrap');

wrap(stop), wrap(start, stop, params={mode:"soft"})

Returns a function that takes a string and returns a new string.
Pad out lines with spaces out to column start and then wrap until column stop. If a word is longer than stop - start characters it will overflow.
In "soft" mode, split chunks by /(\S+\s+/ and don't break up chunks which are longer than stop - start, in "hard" mode, split chunks with /\b/ and break up chunks longer than stop - start.

wrap.hard(start, stop)

Like wrap() but with params.mode = "hard".
