fmt, htmlfmt – simple text formatters|
fmt [ option ... ] [ file ... ] |
htmlfmt [ –a ] [ –c charset ] [ –u url ] [ file ... ]
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.

of tables; it just treats the table entries as plain, to–be–formatted
