NAME
       pr - convert text files for printing

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

DESCRIPTION
       Paginate or columnate FILE(s) for printing.

       Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.

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

       -COLUMN, --columns=COLUMN
	      output  COLUMN columns 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 -COLUMN

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

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

       -D, --date-format=FORMAT
	      use FORMAT for the header date

       -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
	      use  a  centered	HEADER	instead  of filename in page header, -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,
	      --sep-string[=STRING] sets separators

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

       -o, --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 -COLUMN|-m) except -w is set

       -S[STRING], --sep-string[=STRING]
	      separate columns by STRING, 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, --width=PAGE_WIDTH
	      set  page width to PAGE_WIDTH (72) characters for multiple text-column output only,
	      -s[char] turns off (72)

       -W, --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 is implied if PAGE_LENGTH <= 10.  With no FILE, or when FILE is -, read standard input.
