Summary 0001434: Moving the -p option in the pr utility synopsis
Description In
https://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/9699919799/utilities/pr.html [^]
-f and -p are put together as [-fp] in the synopsis. As far as I can tell, if I understand it right, this is a historical artifact from them being added to POSIX from the old SUS standard at the same time. -f is XSI while -p is normal (required, unshaded) so I feel -p can be moved into [-adFmrt] for [-adFmprt] since those are all the other regular flags that don't take arguments.

I originally noted this as a minor nit here:
https://austingroupbugs.net/view.php?id=1432 [^]

An additional thing that could be done might be to move -f too, in the sense of taking it from the very end of the synopsis, and putting it closer to the front, like so:
[-adFmprt] [-f]
Desired Action Move -p into [-adFmrt] to make that section [-adFmprt]
Tags No tags attached.

Or, even, since a single flag can be XSI shaded in a group of flags, maybe even...
[-adfFmprt] or [-adFfmprt] (with XSI shading around the f)

Though if that should be a separate issue, I can make that. Or we can rename this issue to "moving multiple options in the pr synopsis" or something like that.
