Options apply to all following files but may be reset between files: -n Produce n-column output. +n Begin printing with page n. -h Take the next argument as a page header. -d double space -wn For purposes of multi-column output, take the width of the page to be n characters instead of the default 72. -f Use formfeeds to separate pages. Pause, ring bell, and wait for newline before beginning. -ln Take the length of the page to be n lines instead of the default 66. -t Do not print the 5-line header or the 5-line trailer normally supplied for each page. -sc Separate columns by the single character c instead of by the appropriate amount of white space. A missing c is taken to be a tab. -m Print all files simultaneously, each in one column, -on offset the left margin n positions -p between pages pause, ring bell, and wait for newline -b Balance columns on last page, in case of multi-column output.
