The following are from VC++5.0 Help, but no more details can be found any where:

A rich edit control (CRichEditCtrl) calls a function called a "word break procedure" to find breaks between words and to determine where it can break lines. The control uses this information when performing word-wrap operations and when processing the CTRL+LEFT and CTRL+RIGHT key combinations. An application can send messages to a rich edit control to replace the default word-break procedure, to retrieve word-break information, and to determine what line a given character falls on.

I am writing a Chinese editor and need to modify the word wrap logic in RichEditControl.
