#' @title
#' Pad (Center/Left/Right Align) a String
#'
#' @description
#' Add multiple \code{pad} characters at the given \code{side}(s) of each string
#' so that each output string is of total width of at least \code{width}.
#' These functions may be used to center or left/right-align each string.
#'
#' @details
#' Vectorized over \code{str}, \code{width}, and \code{pad}.
#' Each string in \code{pad} should consist of a code points of total width
#' equal to 1 or, if \code{use_length} is \code{TRUE}, exactly one code point.
#'
#' \code{stri_pad} is a convenience function, which dispatches
#' to \code{stri_pad_*}.
#'
#' Note that Unicode code points may have various widths when
#' printed on the console and that, by default, the function takes that
#' into account. By changing the state of the \code{use_length}
#' argument, this function starts acting like each code point
#' was of width 1. This feature should rather be used with
#' text in Latin script.
#'
#' See \code{\link{stri_trim_left}} (among others) for reverse operation.
#' Also check out \code{\link{stri_wrap}} for line wrapping.
#'
#' @param str character vector
#' @param width integer vector giving minimal output string lengths
#' @param side [\code{stri_pad} only] single character string;
#'    sides on which padding character is added
#'    (\code{left} (default), \code{right}, or \code{both})
#' @param pad character vector giving padding code points
#' @param use_length single logical value; should the number of code
#' points be used instead of the total code point width
#'  (see \code{\link{stri_width}})?
#'
#' @return These functions return a character vector.
#'
#' @examples
#' stri_pad_left('stringi', 10, pad='#')
#' stri_pad_both('stringi', 8:12, pad='*')

#'    stri_trans_nfkd('\ud6c8\ubbfc\uc815\uc74c'), 'abcd'),
#'    width=10), sep='\n')
