GNU text processing overview, part 2: Formatting & printing utilities

Given its heritage in Unix, it’s no surprise that GNU has a wealth of text processing tools and techniques to aid coders, writers, and publishers in editing and otherwise manipulating text documents.

This part (part 2) will cover the formatting and printing utilities available on GNU. The previous sections — part 1A & 1B — introduced the basic commands.
