NAME ^

tabulate - a pretty text data tabulator that minimises the width of tables.

SYNOPSIS ^

tabulate <options> [input-files]

DESCRIPTION ^

This UNIX filter reads from either files or standard input, formats the tab-separated text data into pretty, minimal width, space padded tables, and prints to standard output. Various options change the behaviour.

This script is based on, and is part of, the Perl Text::Tabulate module.
