Good spot  - thanks !
ps with the -t option works nicely, although the reports we produce contain
an initial form-feed character (historical) which results in an initial blank
'page' of 66 lines.  However, we already use a print-filter which removes the
initial form-feed on printing (called 'print' below), so that:
print report | pr -t - > output-file
appears to work very nicely
