       +FIRST_PAGE[:LAST_PAGE], --pages=FIRST_PAGE[:LAST_PAGE]
              begin [stop] printing with page FIRST_[LAST_]PAGE

       -COLUMN, --columns=COLUMN
              output COLUMN columns and print columns down, unless -a is used.
              Balance number of lines in the columns on each page

       -a, --across
              print  columns across rather than down, used together with -COL-
              UMN

       -e[CHAR[WIDTH]], --expand-tabs[=CHAR[WIDTH]]
              expand input CHARs (TABs) to tab WIDTH (8)

       -F, -f, --form-feed
              use form feeds instead of  newlines  to  separate  pages  (by  a
              3-line  page header with -F or a 5-line header and trailer with-
              out -F)

       -h, --header=HEADER

       -i[CHAR[WIDTH]], --output-tabs[=CHAR[WIDTH]]
              replace spaces with CHARs (TABs) to tab WIDTH (8)

       -J, --join-lines
              merge full lines, turns off -W line truncation, no column align-
              ment, --sep-string[=STRING] sets separators

       -s[CHAR], --separator[=CHAR]
              separate  columns by a single character, default for CHAR is the
              <TAB> character without -w and 'no char' with -w -s[CHAR]  turns
              off  line  truncation  of all 3 column options (-COLUMN|-a -COL-
              UMN|-m) except -w is set

       -SSTRING, --sep-string[=STRING]
              separate columns by STRING, without -S: Default separator  <TAB>
              with -J and <space> otherwise (same as -S" "), no effect on col-

       -w, --width=PAGE_WIDTH
              set  page  width  to  PAGE_WIDTH  (72)  characters  for multiple
              text-column output only, -s[char] turns off (72)

       -W, --page-width=PAGE_WIDTH
              set page width to PAGE_WIDTH (72)  characters  always,  truncate
              lines, except -J option is set, no interference with -S or -s

       --help display this help and exit

       --version
              output version information and exit
