     foldfold long lines for finite width output device

     fold [-bs] [-w width] [file ...]

     The fold utility 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 a maximum of 80 columns.

     The options are as follows:

     -b	     Count width in bytes rather than column positions.

     -s	     Fold line after the last blank character within the first width
	     column positions (or bytes).

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


     The fold utility conforms to IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 (“POSIX.1”).

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