git‐column − Display data in columns



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




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.



     −−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.



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
