It's not impossible to wrap text in PostScript, but it's generally not the right way to do it. Text layout and positioning calculations should be completed before writing the PostScript.

If you are determined to do it in PostScript you can use the stringwidth operator to get the lengths of strings and decide whether they fit, then decide where to split (on spaces or punctuation is usually expected). A lot of coding.

... and an awful lot of overhead when the RIP interprets the PostScript!
