Term::FormatColumns - Format lists of data into columns across the terminal's width
use Term::FormatColumns qw( format_columns ); my @list = 0..1000; print format_columns @list;
This module will take a list and format it into columns that stretch across the current terminal's width, much like the output of ls(1).
If the filehandle is not attached to a tty, will simply write one column of output (again, like ls(1)).
my $string = format_columns @array;
Format the list of data for STDOUT. Returns a single string formatted and ready for output.
my $string = format_columns_for_fh $fh, @array; my $string = format_columns_for_fh STDOUT, @array;
Format the given data for the given filehandle. If the filehandle is attached to a tty, will get the tty's width to determine how to format the data.
my $string = format_columns_for_width 78, @array;
Format the given data for the given width. This allows you to use this module without being attached to a known/knowable terminal.
