Neato Unix Command (Friday, April 27, 2007)

fold - wrap each input line to fit in specified width

Great for when your text editor is being stupid.


  1. I'm not sure what text editor you're using, but if it's Vim, I presume you're already aware of gq, gqap etc? They wrap lines, wrap all lines in a paragraph, and so on.

  2. It was gedit. I was printing a text file, and the output did not wrap on the printout. So I figured I'd see if there was a command to do the wrapping for me.

    Vim is perfect, of course, and could never be stupid.
