Unix Tip #4421- April 19, 2014


SEARCH : Home : Help : Today's Tip

FOLDING IN LINUX


Fold Long Line files to
Finite Width output device
files.

Ex: fold -b < long_line_file >folded_file

Now the folded_file will
contain output with newlines
inserted after maximum bytes
specified. This will be
useful when editing special
files. You can do the reverse
using "expand" command.
