'reflow' reformats mail messages sensibly. It works as a
UNIX pipe, reformatting STDIN to STDOUT, rather like the fmt
command. However, it's designed to intelligently process text,
particularly mail messages, and deal with quoting and indentation.

It can be wired up to any editor, or (on OS-X) to Automator and Services,
to reflow any editable window on a keypress.

Usage: reflow [options] < INFILE > OUTFILE

  -w, --width N               Set width to N (default 76)
  -s, --strip-signature       Strip email signatures

                              decrease quotation level by -N
  -i, --indent N              Increase indent level by 4N, or
                              decrease indent level by -4N
  -m, --max-quote N           Maximum quotation level of N
