COLUMN(1) General Commands Manual COLUMN(1) NAME column - columnate lists SYNOPSIS column [-tx] [-c columns] [-s sep] [file ...] DESCRIPTION The column utility formats its input into multiple columns. Rows are filled before columns. Input is taken from file operands, or, by default, from the standard input. Empty lines are ignored. The options are as follows: -c Output is formatted for a display columns wide. -s Specify a set of characters to be used to delimit columns for the -t option. -t Determine the number of columns the input contains and create a table. Columns are delimited with whitespace, by default, or with the characters supplied using the -s option. Useful for pretty-printing displays. -x Fill columns before filling rows. ENVIRONMENT COLUMNS The environment variable COLUMNS is used to determine the size of the screen if no other information is available. EXIT STATUS The column utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
