Summary 0001433: The use of carriage-return in pr
Description On
https://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/9699919799/utilities/pr.html [^]
I see that -p waits for <carriage-return>.

Is this intentional?

I see that OpenSolaris (System V), Unix 10th edition, FreeBSD, and NetBSD pr wait for <newline> ('\n') and not <carriage-return>. I did not find an implementation which waits for <carriage-return>. Also, in grepping the entire POSIX standard for carriage-return and \r I find very few uses of it, while uses of <newline> for user input are universal.
Desired Action Figure out whether pr should truly wait for <carriage-return> or not.
