MFLOW(1)		FreeBSD	General	Commands Manual		      MFLOW(1)

NAME
     mflow -- reflow format=flowed plain text messages

SYNOPSIS
     mflow [-f]	[-q] [-w width]	< file

DESCRIPTION
     mflow reformats the standard input	according to the rules of RFC 3676.
     PIPE_CONTENTTYPE is inspected, making this	a suitable filter for
     `text/plain' messages for mshow(1).  Messages not specified as
     `format=flowed' are output	unchanged.

     Text is reflowed (where allowed) to fit the width given in	the environ-
     ment variable COLUMNS, the	terminal width,	or 80 characters by default.

     If	defined, the environment variable MAXCOLUMNS specifies the maximum
     line length.

     The options are as	follows:

     -f	     Force wrapping of long lines.

     -q	     Prefix lines with `>'.  Can be used multiple times.

     -w	width
	     Set maximum line length to	width.

EXIT STATUS
     The mflow utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an	error occurs.
