WRAP_string(string1) rewrites a long syms equation and wraps
it so that it becomes more readable. It automatically divides the expression into individual lines with three dots "..." at the end of each line. Moreover, it detects the existence of operators +,-,*,/ so that it doesn't cut a long name of a variable (such as Lamda_w).

string1: An expression written in syms
n_columns: users can change the maximum width of each line

There should be something built-in/matlab to manipulate equations and text. Thanks

there should be a L1 line in the help section...
the help section is broken: add a % between the description and the example...
the n_columns variable should be an optional input making it more easy to change than having to edit the file...
the result should also be collected in an (optional) output argument...




this file was updated so that it ends each line on a mathematical operator (+,-,*,/). in the previous edition, the code might end a line while cutting the name of a long variable (such as Lamda_w)
