     CHUNK(1)                                                 CHUNK(1)

          chunk - segment text into phrase units

          chunk [ -flags ][ -ver ] [file ...]

          Chunk segments text into phrase units by beginning a new
          line at the end of each unit it identifies.

          Two options give information about the program:

               -flags print the command synopsis line (see above)
                      showing command flags and options, then exit.

               -ver   print the Writer's Workbench version number of
                      the command, then exit.

          This program is useful for reading research, and it can be
          used to reformat text files for easier editing.  Addition-
          ally, editors may find it easier to edit a text whose
          microstructure is typographically clear.

          Since chunk runs deroff(1) on the input text, formatting
          commands (and thus paragraph and heading structures) are
          lost in the output.

          Chunk will think unfamiliar abbreviations are the end of a
          sentence, and hence the end of the chunk.
