| A    |  1.34  | -214.1 |
| CCCC | 55.534 | 1131.1 |

Column widths are unified across the table, decimal dots are aligned, and tablign tries to be smart about column separators. Works for CSV, LaTeX, Markdown etc. By default, tablign reads from stdin and writes to stdout, so you can use pipes with tablign, too:

head -n in.txt | tablign

Usage from vim

Simply mark the table (shift-V), and type



GNU's column command is a mighty alternative:

column -t
