[reportlab-users] hard splitting a paragraph

We have developed a system that generates reports from Python lists. This
works nicely, however, sometimes a field is longer than the designated room
in a column, and spills over to the next column. This only happens if there
is no white space between words and the word itself is too big. If there is
white space, the line is split correctly, and a new line is printed.
In fact I want a flowable that splits the lines according to the normal rules
of the paragraph, but if there is too little room, splits it on a certain
point no matter what.
Anyone any idea how to do this?
Thanks in advance.
