GIT-COLUMN(1)                     Git Manual                     GIT-COLUMN(1)



NAME
       git-column - Display data in columns

SYNOPSIS
       git column [--command=<name>] [--[raw-]mode=<mode>] [--width=<width>]
                    [--indent=<string>] [--nl=<string>] [--padding=<n>]


DESCRIPTION
       This command formats the lines of its standard input into a table with
       multiple columns. Each input line occupies one cell of the table. It is
       used internally by other git commands to format output into columns.

OPTIONS
       --command=<name>
           Look up layout mode using configuration variable column.<name> and
           column.ui.

       --mode=<mode>
           Specify layout mode. See configuration variable column.ui for
           option syntax in git-config(1).

       --raw-mode=<n>
           Same as --mode but take mode encoded as a number. This is mainly
           used by other commands that have already parsed layout mode.

       --width=<width>
           Specify the terminal width. By default git column will detect the
           terminal width, or fall back to 80 if it is unable to do so.

       --indent=<string>
           String to be printed at the beginning of each line.

       --nl=<N>
           String to be printed at the end of each line, including newline
           character.

       --padding=<N>
           The number of spaces between columns. One space by default.

EXAMPLES
       Format data by columns:

           $ seq 1 24 | git column --mode=column --padding=5
           1      4      7      10     13     16     19     22
           2      5      8      11     14     17     20     23
           3      6      9      12     15     18     21     24


       Format data by rows:

           $ seq 1 21 | git column --mode=row --padding=5
           1      2      3      4      5      6      7
           8      9      10     11     12     13     14
           15     16     17     18     19     20     21


       List some tags in a table with unequal column widths:

           $ git tag --list 'v2.4.*' --column=row,dense
           v2.4.0  v2.4.0-rc0  v2.4.0-rc1  v2.4.0-rc2  v2.4.0-rc3
           v2.4.1  v2.4.10     v2.4.11     v2.4.12     v2.4.2
           v2.4.3  v2.4.4      v2.4.5      v2.4.6      v2.4.7
           v2.4.8  v2.4.9
