NAME
     foldfold long lines for finite width output device

SYNOPSIS
     fold [-w width] file ...

DESCRIPTION
     Fold is a filter which folds the contents of the specified files, or the
     standard input if no files are specified, breaking the lines to have max‐
     imum of 80 characters.

     The options are as follows:

     -w	     Specifies a line width to use instead of the default 80 charac‐
	     ters.  Width should be a multiple of 8 if tabs are present, or
	     the tabs should be expanded using expand(1) before using fold.

BUGS
     If underlining is present it may be messed up by folding.
