Answer about how: use icode instead of code (in square braquets...)
# 5  
about the command itself, its difficult to say.. because there it seems out of context..
Where does it come from?
(clues I understand pr as pr "print" the formatting command, look at the man pages...)
# 6  
This may not be clear if you're not used to man pages, -124 is a weird-looking option Smilie It appears that a number, by itself, just refers to the number of columns you want in pr's output here...
# 7  
But you agree corona I imagine the command behind a pipe, or I am myself a bit lost... Smilie
