shift_lines(1) add or remove indentation to/from lines


capitalize [-t num]


shift_lines is a filter that adds or removes indentation on the left side of the lines sent through it. It reads text from stdin and writes the result to stdout. When adding indentation, it will insert space characters; when removing, it removes any characters, not just space.

Please note that shift_lines is intended mainly to be run from XView's text menu. It is used in the default text_extras_menu.


-t num
Specify number of characters to be added/removed on the left side of the lines. Default is 1, negative numbers will remove the given amount of indentation.
