Description John Hein 2017-04-28 15:53:24 UTC
For freebsd 9 (starting with 9.2 I think) and later (namely since the import of netbsd's vis(1) implementation in 9-current), vis -F doesn't fold.

9-stable% echo 12345678 | vis -F 5
12345678\$

8-stable% echo 12345678 | vis -F 5
123\
456\
78

I haven't checked netbsd yet.  Please add a note here if you do.
