SYNOPSISpr [ 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.

-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.

characters instead of the default 72.
