word wrap in java

i got this code for printing by googling.

import javax.print.*;
import javax.print.attribute.*;

public class Printing {
  public static void print(String args) throws Exception {
    String filename = args;
    PageFormat pageFormat 
    PrintRequestAttributeSet pras = 
      new HashPrintRequestAttributeSet();
    DocFlavor flavor = DocFlavor.INPUT_STREAM.AUTOSENSE;
    //flavor = DocFlavor.CHAR_ARRAY.TEXT_PLAIN;
    PrintService printService[] = 
      PrintServiceLookup.lookupPrintServices(flavor, pras);
    PrintService defaultService = 
    PrintService service = ServiceUI.printDialog(null, 200, 200,
      printService, defaultService, flavor, pras);
    if (service != null) {
      DocPrintJob job = service.createPrintJob();
      FileInputStream fis = new FileInputStream(filename);
      DocAttributeSet das = new HashDocAttributeSet();
      Doc doc = new SimpleDoc(fis, flavor, das);
      job.print(doc, pras);

did you try different types of doc flavors? because you can set up different types of documents and print sizes?

what is filename? is it a file of google results or something else, because if its a of google results, you could parse the file, to make it wrap and then stream it into another or same file....just a thought.

if you're using a fixed-width font you could just count the characters between "\n"'s and when it gets to 80 or textfield.size().width/8 or whatever insert a "\n"... but that might be slow... an alternative (as previously suggested) is to check which subclass (or implementation... can't remember if it's an interface) of Document the textfield's using and even manually set it (this well may cause it to render html as plain text).
