Create pretty looking ascii tables

Project description

# ascii-tables

Create a pretty looking ascii table.

## Usage (command line):
```
python ascii-tables.py [options] < input_file.txt
```

Where `input_file.txt` contains your input separated by (any amount of) tabs or 4/8/.. spaces and new-line characters and the output table is printed on the terminal.

## Usage (gui):
```
python gui.py
```

## Example:
### Input:
```
Col 1 Col 2 Col 3 Col 4
Val1 Val2 Val3 Val4
Val11 Val22 Val33 Val44
Vala Valb Valc Vald
```
### Output (-h option):
```
+-------+-------+-------+-------+
| Col 1 | Col 2 | Col 3 | Col 4 |
+=======+=======+=======+=======+
| Val1 | Val2 | Val3 | Val4 |
+-------+-------+-------+-------+
| Val11 | Val22 | Val33 | Val44 |
+-------+-------+-------+-------+
| Vala | Valb | Valc | Vald |
+-------+-------+-------+-------+
```

The input in the command line execution can have an arbitrary amount of tabs separating the values. For example either one of the following inputs will output the same result:
### Inputs:
```
input_size algorithmA algorithmB algorithmC algorithmD

5000 - - 33.53 sec. 16.80 sec.
10000 - - 85.4 sec. 47.18 sec.
```
