       pr - print file

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

       Pr  produces a printed listing of one or more files on its standard output.  The output is
       separated into pages headed by a date, the name of the file or a specified header, and the
       page number.  With 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.

       -b     Balance columns on last page, in case of multi-column output.

       -d     Double space.

       -en    Set the tab stops for input text every n spaces.

       -h     Take the next argument as a page header (file by default).

       -in    Replace sequences of blanks in the output by tabs, using tab stops set every n spa-

       -f     Use formfeeds to separate pages.

       -ln    Take the length of the page to be n lines instead of the default 66.

       -m     Print all files simultaneously, each in one column.

       -n     Number the lines of each file.

       -on    Offset the left margin n character positions.

       -sc    Separate columns by the single character c instead  of  aligning	them  with  white
	      space.  A missing c is taken to be a tab.

       -t     Do  not  print  the  5-line header or the 5-line trailer normally supplied for each

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