NAME

       center - print centered text to stdout


SYNOPSIS

       center columns file


DESCRIPTION

       center  is a simple utility for centering text on a screen.  columns is
       the number of columns that are considered to be the  width  of  a  full
       screen.   The  default and maximum widths are both 80 columns.  Text is
       read from the input file file and printed to stdout.


BUGS

       center should be able to read from stdin.

       center would be more useful if it took  arbitrary  screen  widths  into
       account,  including over 80 columns.  Less than about 5 or 10 is proba-
       bly unnecessary.
