NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     fmt - simple text formatter

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     fmt [ -width ] [ name ...	]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     Fmt is a simple text formatter which reads	the concatenation of input
     files (or standard	input if none are given) and produces on standard
     output a version of its input with	lines as close to width	characters
     long as possible.	The spacing at the beginning of	the input lines	is
     preserved in the output, as are blank lines and interword spacing.	 The
     default width is 72 characters.

     Fmt is meant to format mail messages prior	to sending, but	may also be
     useful for	other simple tasks.  For instance, within visual mode of the
     ex	editor (e.g.  vi) the command
     will reformat a paragraph,	justifying the lines.

     nroff(1), Mail(1)

BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]

     The program was designed to be simple and fast - for more complex
     operations, the standard text processors are likely to be more
