Command Reference: swivel-table

Rotates a table by 90 degrees

Description

swivel-table rotates a table by 90 degrees so the x axis becomes the y.

Usage

<stdin> -> swivel-table -> <stdout>

Examples

» ps: aux -> head: -n5
USER       PID %CPU %MEM    VSZ   RSS TTY      STAT START   TIME COMMAND
root         1  0.0  0.1 233996  8736 ?        Ss   Feb19   0:02 /sbin/init
root         2  0.0  0.0      0     0 ?        S    Feb19   0:00 [kthreadd]
root         4  0.0  0.0      0     0 ?        I<   Feb19   0:00 [kworker/0:0H]
root         6  0.0  0.0      0     0 ?        I<   Feb19   0:00 [mm_percpu_wq]

That data swivelled would look like the following:

» ps: aux -> head: -n5 -> swivel-table
0       USER    root    root    root    root
1       PID     1       2       4       6
2       %CPU    0.0     0.0     0.0     0.0
3       %MEM    0.1     0.0     0.0     0.0
4       VSZ     233996  0       0       0
5       RSS     8736    0       0       0
6       TTY     ?       ?       ?       ?
7       STAT    Ss      S       I<      I<
8       START   Feb19   Feb19   Feb19   Feb19
9       TIME    0:02    0:00    0:00    0:00
10      COMMAND /sbin/init      [kthreadd]      [kworker/0:0H]  [mm_percpu_wq]

Please note that column one is numbered because by default murex couldn't guess whether the first line of generic output is a title or data. However if we format that as a CSV, which by default does have a title row (configurable via config), then you would see titles as column one:

» ps: aux -> head: -n5 -> format: csv
