xkcd1930 is a generator of calendar facts, based on the xkcd comic by Randall Monroe: https://xkcd.com/1930


s = xkcd1930; % Generate a random fact and save as long string s
s = xkcd1930('titletext'); % Same as above, but includes the title text
s = xkcd1930('wrap'); % The string "s" fits on the terminal display


s = xkcd1930('titletext','wrap');

xkcd1930 includes a modified version of "wraptext", by Chad Greene (2015). Full function available at: https://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/53176-wraptext
