Unix "man" Documentation:
MicroPro Standard Library pr
pr - print file
pr [ option ] ... [ file ] ...
Pr produces a printed listing of one or more files. The
output is separated into pages headed by a date, the name of
the file or a specified header, and the page number. If
there are no file arguments, pr prints its standard input.
Options apply to all following files but may be reset be-
/n Produce n-column output.
/pn Begin printing with page n.
/h Take the next argument as a page header.
/wn Take the width of the page to be n characters instead
of the default 80.
/f Use formfeeds instead of newlines to separate pages. A
formfeed is assumed to use up two blank lines at the
top of a page. (Thus this option does not affect the
effective page length.)
/ln Take the length of the page to be n lines instead of
the default 66.
/t Do not print the 5-line header or the 5-line trailer
normally supplied for each page.
/sc Separate columns by the single character c instead of
by the appropriate amount of white space. A missing c
is taken to be a tab.
/m Print all files simultaneously, each in one column.
/Tn Take the width of a tab character to be n instead of
the default 8.
Note the following differences between UNIX pr(1) and PC-DOS
. The switch character may be changed from `/' to `-' by
the documented methods.
. The option structure follows the conventions estab-
lished by AT&T for UNIX command options, enforced by
the use of the getopt() function. Options that require
arguments (such as /l) may have white space between the
option and the argument or not. Several options may be
concatenated behind a single `/' with no white space
. More than 9 columns are not supported, or 15 files
. The UNIX "+n" option is replaced by "/pn".
pr /t /m filea fileb filec
will print out the three files simultaneously, each in one
column, without headers.
