] command argument ...
applyruns the named command on each given argument in turn. Character sequences of the form “
%d” in command, where ‘d’ is a digit from 1 to 9, are replaced by the
d'th following unused argument. In this case, the largest digit number of arguments are discarded for each execution of command. The options are as follows:
-# specifies the number of arguments to be passed to command. If the number is zero, command is run, without arguments, once for each argument. If any sequences of “
%d” occur in command, the
-# option is ignored.
