filter for folding lines
Wrap each line to default width (80 characters)
Wrap each line to width "30"
Wrap each line to width "5" and break the line at spaces (puts each space separated word in a new line, words with length > 5 are wrapped)

With no FILE, or when FILE is -, read standard input.
Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.
- -b, --bytes
count bytes rather than columns
- -s, --spaces
break at spaces
- -w, --width=WIDTH
use WIDTH columns instead of 80
