The input might be a filename:
$ shrincols filename.txt -c 80
or a string:
$ shrincols "some text goes here ..." -c 80
The option -j forces the text to be justified:
$ shrincols filename.txt -c 80 -j
Altough the result will always be printed on the standard output, the option -o might be used for writing the result to a file.
$ shrincols filename.txt -c 40 -o output.txt
It is also possible to pipe standard output into the script’s standard input:
$ cat filename.txt | shrincols -c 40

If virtualenv isn’t active then use
$ pipenv run make
