Synopsis

[address1[,address2]]p

Description

Print the addressed lines. Unless the -n command-line option is used, this command causes duplicate lines to be output. Also, it typically is used before commands that change flow control (d, N, b) and that might prevent the current line from being output. See examples at h, n, and N.
