NAME
       pr - print file

SYNOPSIS
       pr [ option ] ...  [ file ] ...

DESCRIPTION
       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.

       Options apply to all following files but may be reset between files:

       -n     Produce n-column output.

       +n     Begin printing with page n.

       -h     Take the next argument as a page header.

       -wn    For  purposes of multi-column output, take the width of the page to be n characters
	      instead of the default 72.

       -f     Use formfeeds instead of newlines to separate pages.  A formfeed is assumed to  use
	      up  two  blank  lines  at the top of a page.  (Thus this option does not affect the
	      effective page length.)

       -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,

       Inter-terminal messages via write(1) are forbidden during a pr.

FILES
       /dev/tty?  to suspend messages.

SEE ALSO
       cat(1)

DIAGNOSTICS
       There are no diagnostics when pr is printing on a terminal.
