Cocoa: put returns in NSString to keep it to a certain width - Mac Programming

I have an NSString. Sometimes it contains only a tiny bit of text but sometimes it's more than that. If it'll be wider than a certain amount I want to display it on multiple lines. I know what font, etc. it'll be drawn in. How do I figure out where to put the returns ? Is there a function which will wrap the string for me or tell me where to wrap it ?...

    Default Cocoa: put returns in NSString to keep it to a certain width

    I have an NSString. Sometimes it contains only a tiny bit of text
    but sometimes it's more than that. If it'll be wider than a
    certain amount I want to display it on multiple lines. I know what
    font, etc. it'll be drawn in.

    How do I figure out where to put the returns ? Is there a function
    which will wrap the string for me or tell me where to wrap it ?

    Just display it in an NSTextView or NSTextField that you've set to wrap
    its text. Then it'll automatically wrap.

    Then how do I look at it and see where it was wrapped ?
    I can't use those things as the ultimate destinations for it,
    I have to take the wrapped string and do more things with it.
