First of all, happy Father's Day to those dads out there.

The last frontier for my Unicode support was word breaking. It's monstrously difficult to do in Unicode.

This morning I turned this:

The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog


Into this:

The

quick

brown

fox

jumped

over

the

lazy

dog

(The extra breaks are deliberate because you can break on both ends of a space)

Using code I adapted from this GitHub - adah1972/libunibreak: The libunibreak library[^]

which I found under the ZLib license, so win. I'm refactoring the entire thing, but I got it building without a makefile which took most of the morning.

Anyway I still have a ton of work to do before word wrapping is implemented fully in GFX but my day is off to a good start.
To err is human. Fortune favors the monsters.
