27.SH DESCRIPTION
28.PP
29.I just
30and
31.I fill
32are filters for filling and right justifying or simply filling
33lines of text, respectively.  They are intended to be used to
34filter text regions when called from an editor such as \fIvi\fP.
35For example, in \fIvi\fP, to format the entire buffer the command
36would be:
37.sp
38.B
39:1,$!just

41If no argument is given, the right margin defaults to column 65,
42otherwise \fInnn\fP specifies a column number in the range 1 <= \fInnn\fP <= 510.
43.PP
44Each paragraph of text is indented based on how it was given in the
45input: The first line will have the same indentation as in the input,
46and the rest of the paragraph is indented the same as the second line
47of the input (if any).
48.PP
49Tabs are converted to spaces on input.  An extra space at the end of
50a sentence is preserved if present in the input.
