       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.


           Look up layout mode using configuration variable column.<name> and

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

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

           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.

           String to be printed at the beginning of each line.

           String to be printed at the end of each line, including newline

           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


       Everything below this line in this section is selectively included from
       the git-config(1) documentation. The content is the same as what's
       found there:

           Specify whether supported commands should output in columns. This
           variable consists of a list of tokens separated by spaces or

           These options control when the feature should be enabled (defaults
           to never):

               always show in columns

               never show in columns

               show in columns if the output is to the terminal

           These options control layout (defaults to column). Setting any of
           these implies always if none of always, never, or auto are

               fill columns before rows

               fill rows before columns

               show in one column

           Finally, these options can be combined with a layout option
           (defaults to nodense):

               make unequal size columns to utilize more space

               make equal size columns

           Specify whether to output branch listing in git branch in columns.
           See column.ui for details.

           Specify the layout when listing items in git clean -i, which always
           shows files and directories in columns. See column.ui for details.

           Specify whether to output untracked files in git status in columns.
           See column.ui for details.

           Specify whether to output tag listings in git tag in columns. See
           column.ui for details.
