Help with string manipulation

Hi folks, I'm stuck.
I need to manipulate a string in the following way. I want to take
a string and, if it has a length of over 60 characters, ensure every
sixtieth character is a blank space. If a letter falls within the
60th or multiple of sixty character I want to step back to the
beginning of that word and push it to the 61st character and pad the
previous area to 60 characters with spaces.
Make sense?

Any help greatly appreciated. I've gotten it to work but only when
the string is less than 120 characters.
