Description

Formats plain text and improves upon the classical fmt tool. Well suited as a reformatting filter for mails, reports, README files and all kinds of structured typescripts.

Features include:

- Knows about section headings, numbered item lists, unordered lists, paragraph numbers.

- Can automatically renumber sections, items, paragraphs.

- Handles no-break space (NBSP) and soft hyphen (SHY) sensible.

- Uses Unicode internally, reads and writes 8-bit oder UTF-8 encoded files.

- Recognizes preformatted paragraphs (eg source code, tables).

- Reformats paragraphs either using the traditional greedy line breaking algorithm, or a TeX-like optimizing algorithm.
