                  <TAB> character without -w and 'no char' with -w -s[CHAR]  turns
                  off  line  truncation  of all 3 column options (-COLUMN|-a -COL-
                  UMN|-m) except -w is set

           -w, --width=PAGE_WIDTH
                  set  page  width  to  PAGE_WIDTH  (72)  characters  for multiple
                  text-column output only, -s[char] turns off (72)
    
           -W, --page-width=PAGE_WIDTH
