I would like to be able to break up long lines in sam in a way similar to the way I break them up in ed. For ed, I rely on the external command !fold -s -w80 %.

This did not work for me in sam. What would be the best way to achieve this in sam? And is there a format line(s) command I could use? 

Many thanks.

        | Plan 9-command
               Send the range to the standard input, and replace it by 
               the standard output, of the Plan 9 command.

Thus, run something like `,|fold -s` or `,|fmt` to format long lines 
in, for example, your emails.
