FMT(1)                                                     FMT(1)

     NAME
          fmt - simple text formatter

     SYNOPSIS
          fmt [ -l n ] [ -i n ] [ -j ] [ file ... ]

     DESCRIPTION
          Fmt copies the given files (standard input by default) to
          its standard output, filling and indenting lines.  The
          options are

          -l n Output line length is n, including indent (default 70).

          -w n A synonym for -l.

          -i n Indent n spaces (default 0).

          -j   Do not join short lines: only fold long lines.

          Empty lines and initial white space in input lines are pre-
          served.  Empty lines are inserted between input files.

          Fmt is idempotent: it leaves already formatted text
          unchanged.
