Command Reference: tabulate

Table transformation tools

Description

tabluate is a swiss army knife for table transforming human readable tables into machine readable data structure.

Please note that this builtin is still in active development and the default behavior will continue to change and evolve. Any features marked with a flag (see below) will be stable, have numerous tests written against them, and thus safe to use.

Usage

<stdin> -> tabulate [ flags ] -> <stdout>

Detail

Dynamic Autocompletion

Because tabulate is designed to parse human readable tables, it is used a lot for dynamically turning command like program help output into JSON maps for autocomplete's DynamicDesc blocks:

rsync --help -> @[^Options$..--help]re -> tabulate: --map --split-comma --column-wraps --key-inc-hint
