FMT(1)				     General Commands Manual				   FMT(1)

NAME
       fmt - ultra-simple text formatter

SYNOPSIS
       fmt [ option ...  ] [ file ...  ]

DESCRIPTION
       Fmt copies the given files (standard input by default) to its standard output, filling and
       indenting lines.  The options are

       -l n   Output line length is n, including indent (default 70).

       -i n   Indent n spaces (default 0).

       -j     Don't join input lines, simply split them where necessary.

       Empty lines and initial white space  in	input  lines  are  preserved.	Empty  lines  are
       inserted between input files.

       Fmt is idempotent: it leaves already formatted text unchanged.

SOURCE
       /sys/src/cmd/fmt.c

BUGS
       Words longer than 256 characters are split.
