pr - print file
pr [ -h header ] [
-n ] [ +n ] [ -wn ] [ -ln ] [ -t ] [ -sc
] [ -m ] name . . .
Pr produces a printed listing of one or more files. The
output is separated into pages headed by a date, the name of
the file or a specified header, and the page number. If
there are no file arguments, pr prints its standard input,
and is thus usable as a filter.
Options apply to all following files but may be reset
-n produce n-column output
+n begin printing with page n
-h treat the next argument as a header to be used instead
of the file name
-wn for purposes of multi-column output, take the width of
the page to be n characters instead of the default 72
-ln take the length of the page to be n lines instead of
the default 66
-t do not print the 5-line header or the 5-line trailer
normally supplied for each page
-sc separate columns by the single character c instead of
by the appropriate amount of white space. A missing c
is taken to be a tab.
-m print all files simultaneously, each in one column
Interconsole messages via write(I) are forbidden during a
/dev/tty? to suspend messages.
