PR(1)                       General Commands Manual                      PR(1)



NAME
       pr  -  print file

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

DESCRIPTION
       Pr produces a printed listing of one or more files.  The output is sep-
       arated 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 between files:

       -n     Produce n-column output.

       +n     Begin printing with page n.

       -h     Take the next argument as a page header.

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

       -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,

       Inter-terminal messages via write(1) are forbidden during a pr.

FILES
       /dev/tty?  to suspend messages.

DIAGNOSTICS
       There are no diagnostics when pr is printing on a terminal.
