       psc - prepare sc files


       psc [-fLkrSPv] [-s cell] [-R n] [-C n] [-n n] [-d c]


       Psc  is  used  to  prepare data for input to the spreadsheet calculator sc(1).  It accepts
       normal ascii data on standard input.  Standard output is a sc file.  With no options,  psc
       starts  the  spreadsheet  in cell A0.  Strings are right justified.  All data on a line is
       entered on the same row; new input lines cause the output row number to increment by  one.
       The  default  delimiters are tab and space.  The column formats are set to one larger than
       the number of columns required to hold the largest value in the column.


       -f     Omit column width calculations.  This option is for preparing  data  to  be  merged
              with  an  existing  spreadsheet.  If the option is not specified, the column widths
              calculated for the data read by psc will override those already set in the existing

       -L     Left justify strings.

       -k     Keep  all  delimiters.   This  option  causes the output cell to change on each new
              delimiter encountered in the input stream.   The  default  action  is  to  condense
              multiple delimiters to one, so that the cell only changes once per input data item.

       -r     Output the data by row first then column.  For input consisting of a single column,
              this option will result in output of one row with multiple  columns  instead  of  a
              single column spreadsheet.

       -s cell
              Start  the  top  left  corner of the spreadsheet in cell.  For example, -s B33 will
              arrange the output data so that the spreadsheet starts in column B, row 33.

       -R n   Increment by n on each new output row.

       -C n   Increment by n on each new output column.

       -n n   Output n rows before advancing to the next column.  This option is  used  when  the
              input  is  arranged  in  a  single  column  and the spreadsheet is to have multiple
              columns, each of which is to be length n.

       -d c   Use the single character c as the delimiter between input fields.

       -P     Plain numbers only.  A field is a number only when there is no imbedded [-+eE].

       -S     All numbers are strings.

       -v     Print the version of psc
