NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       pr - convert text files for printing

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       pr [OPTION]... [FILE]...

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       Paginate or columnate FILE(s) for printing.

       +FIRST_PAGE[:LAST_PAGE], --pages=FIRST_PAGE[:LAST_PAGE]
	      begin [stop] printing with page FIRST_[LAST_]PAGE

       -COLUMN, --columns=COLUMN
	      produce  COLUMN-column  output and print columns down, unless -a
	      is used. Balance number of lines in the columns on each page.

       -a, --across
	      print columns across rather than down, used together with  -COL-
	      UMN

       -c, --show-control-chars
	      use hat notation (^G) and octal backslash notation

       -d, --double-space
	      double space the output

       -e[CHAR[WIDTH]], --expand-tabs[=CHAR[WIDTH]]
	      expand input CHARs (TABs) to tab WIDTH (8)

       -F, -f, --form-feed
	      use  form  feeds	instead  of  newlines  to separate pages (by a
	      3-line page header with -F or a 5-line header and trailer  without
 -F)

       -h HEADER, --header=HEADER
	      use  a  centered HEADER instead of filename in page header, with
	      long headers left-hand-side truncation may occur, -h "" prints a
	      blank line, don't use -h""

       -i[CHAR[WIDTH]], --output-tabs[=CHAR[WIDTH]]
	      replace spaces with CHARs (TABs) to tab WIDTH (8)

       -J, --join-lines
	      merge full lines, turns off -W line truncation, no column alignment,
 -S[STRING] sets separators

       -l PAGE_LENGTH, --length=PAGE_LENGTH
	      set the page length to PAGE_LENGTH (66) lines (default number of
	      lines of text 56, and with -F 63)

       -m, --merge
	      print all files in parallel, one in each column, truncate lines,
	      but join lines of full length with -J

       -n[SEP[DIGITS]], --number-lines[=SEP[DIGITS]]
	      number lines, use DIGITS (5) digits,  then  SEP  (TAB),  default
	      counting starts with 1st line of input file

       -N NUMBER, --first-line-number=NUMBER
	      start  counting  with  NUMBER  at 1st line of first page printed
	      (see +FIRST_PAGE)

       -o MARGIN, --indent=MARGIN
	      offset each line with MARGIN (zero) spaces, do not affect -w  or
	      -W, MARGIN will be added to PAGE_WIDTH

       -r, --no-file-warnings
	      omit warning when a file cannot be opened

       -s[CHAR],--separator[=CHAR]
	      separate	columns by a single character, default for CHAR is the
	      <TAB> character without -w and 'no char' with -w -s[CHAR]  turns
	      off  line  truncation  of all 3 column options (-COLUMN|-a -COL-
	      UMN|-m) except -w is set

       -S[STRING], --sep-string[=STRING]
	      separate columns by an optional STRING, don't use  -S  "STRING",
	      -S  only:  No separator used (same as -S""), without -S: Default
	      separator <TAB> with -J and <space> otherwise (same as  -S"  "),
	      no effect on column options

       -t, --omit-header omit page headers and trailers

       -T, --omit-pagination
	      omit page headers and trailers, eliminate any pagination by form
	      feeds set in input files

       -v, --show-nonprinting
	      use octal backslash notation

       -w PAGE_WIDTH, --width=PAGE_WIDTH
	      set page width to PAGE_WIDTH (72) characters for multiple  textcolumn
 output only, -s[char] turns off (72)

       -W PAGE_WIDTH, --page-width=PAGE_WIDTH
	      set  page  width	to PAGE_WIDTH (72) characters always, truncate
	      lines, except -J option is set, no interference with -S or -s

       --help display this help and exit

       --version
	      output version information and exit

       -T implied by -l nn when nn <= 10 or <= 3 with -F.  With  no  FILE,  or
       when FILE is -, read standard input.
