Detecting Text Boundaries: Concept map

Applications that manipulate text need to locate boundaries within the text. For example, consider some of the common functions of a word processor: highlighting a character, cutting a word, moving the cursor to the next sentence, and wrapping a word at a line ending. To perform each of these functions, the word processor must be able to detect the logical boundaries in the text. Fortunately you don't have to write your own routines to perform boundary analysis. Instead, you can take advantage of the methods provided by the BreakIterator class.
