If you mean wrapping on command after editing rather than hard-wrapping
as you type, you certainly don't need to buy anything to get this. You can
install TextExtras <http://www.lorax.com/FreeStuff/TextExtras.html>,
which is a free Cocoa inputmanager that adds all sorts of goodies that 
you can use in any Cocoa program (even in text-entry form boxes in Safari).
One of the things you can do is pipe your text (all or a selection) 
through any shell command, so you can pipe your document through the "fold"
command to wrap it. You can write scripts that act on your text and have
them listed in a special scripts menu with keyboard shortcuts associated.
