There is a Text::Wrap Module you can use as follows:

use Text::Wrap;
$Text::Wrap::colums = 70;
$wrapped = wrap('','',$vartowrap);
the first to parameters are appended to the first line and subseqent lines
respectivley.

This Modules is documented on page 512 of the Camel book aka "Programming Perl"
