NAME

       fmt, htmlfmt - simple text formatters

SYNOPSIS

       fmt [ option ...  ] [ file ...  ]

       htmlfmt [ -a ] [ -c charset ] [ -u url ] [ 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  preserved.   Empty  lines  are
       inserted between input files.

       Fmt is idempotent: it leaves already formatted text unchanged.

       Htmlfmt  performs  a  similar service, but accepts as input text formatted with HTML tags.
       It accepts fmt's -l and -w flags and also:

       -a     Normally htmlfmt suppresses the contents of form fields and anchors (URLs and image
              files); this flag causes it to print them, in square brackets.

       -c charset
              change the default character set from iso-8859-1 to charset.  This is the character
              set assumed if there isn't one specified by the html itself in a <meta> directive.

       -u url Use url as the base URL for the document when displaying anchors; sets -a.

BUGS

       Htmlfmt makes no attempt to render the two-dimensional geometry of tables; it just  treats
       the table entries as plain, to-be-formatted text.
