       pr - print file

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

       Pr produces a printed listing of one or more files on its standard out‐
       put.  The output is separated into pages headed by a date, the name  of
       the  file  or  a	 specified  header, and the page number.  With 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.

       -b     Balance columns on last page, in case of multi-column output.

       -d     Double space.

       -en    Set the tab stops for input text every n spaces.

       -h     Take the next argument as a page header (file by default).

       -in    Replace sequences of blanks in the output	 by  tabs,  using  tab
	      stops set every n spaces.

       -f     Use form feeds to separate pages.

       -ln    Take the length of the page to be n lines instead of the default

       -m     Print all files simultaneously, each in one column.

       -nm    Number the lines of each file.  The numeric argument m,  default
	      5, sets the width of the line-number field.

       -on    Offset the left margin n character positions.

       -p     Pad  each file printed to an even number of pages, if necessary.
	      For two-sided printers, this will ensure each file will start  a
	      new page.

       -sc    Separate	columns	 by the single character c instead of aligning
	      them with white space.  A missing c is taken to be a tab.

       -t     Do not print the 5-line header or the  5-line  trailer  normally
	      supplied for each page.

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