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
