ubform – forms overlay
ubform -[d f* o#] <form>
ubform is used to overlay a form onto a report (such as an order form or table). The overlay form is given by the -f flag. The report can be in a file or if none is given then standard input is read.
ubform understands attribute specifications where a line ending in “@@” is followed by an attribute line. These two lines are counted as one and the attribute line is passed through unchanged. ubform also passes through “.” commands (i.e. lines starting with “.”) unchanged.
Another filter such as ubprint (1) is required to produce actual printer output.
