FOLD(1) 			   BSD General Commands Manual				  FOLD(1)

NAME
     fold -- fold long lines for finite width output device

SYNOPSIS
     fold [-bs] [-w width] [file ...]

DESCRIPTION
     fold is a filter which folds the contents of the specified files, or the standard input if
     no files are specified, breaking the lines to have a maximum of 80 characters.

     The options are as follows:

     -b 	 Count width in bytes rather than column positions.

     -s 	 Fold line after the last blank character within the first width column positions
		 (or bytes).

     -w width	 Specifies width to use as a line width, instead of the default 80 characters.

ENVIRONMENT
     LC_CTYPE

EXIT STATUS
     The fold utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.

SEE ALSO
     expand(1), fmt(1)

STANDARDS
     The fold utility conforms to IEEE Std 1003.1-2008 (``POSIX.1'').

BUGS
     If underlining is present it may be messed up by folding.

     Width should be a multiple of 8 if tabs are present, or the tabs should be expanded using
     expand(1) before using fold.
