Subject: [gentoo-user] how to word-wrap using a pipe?
Date: Mon, 20 Oct 2008 01:13:54
1 Hello. How can I line-wrap a text file that was not wrapped before (e.g.
2 like text file created on Microsoft Windows's notepad, the software does
3 softwrap by default, thus the file created using it often have very long
4 text lines) by using command pipe?
6 I could use vim, activate some formatting options and use gq. But that
7 couldn't be used on a pipe.
9 I could use groff, but that command line looks too complicated:
11 $ head -n1 max_payne | groff -Tutf8 | grep --invert-match ^$
12 Life was good. A house on the Jersey side across the river. The
13 smell of freshly cut lawns. The sounds of children playing. A
14 beautiful wife and a baby girl. The American dream come true. But
15 dreams have a nasty habit of going bad when you’re not looking.
18 Besides groff wraps not according to the console term width, but
19 according to the paper size in /etc/paper. It would be nice to have
20 something wrap my text by using console width (what you get with '$ stty
21 -a | head -n1')
