GIT-COLUMN(1)                  Git Manual                  GIT-COLUMN(1)

NAME         top

       git-column - Display data in columns

SYNOPSIS         top

       git column [--command=<name>] [--[raw-]mode=<mode>] [--width=<width>]
                    [--indent=<string>] [--nl=<string>] [--padding=<n>]

DESCRIPTION         top

       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         top

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

           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

           Specify the terminal width. By default git column will detect
           the terminal width, or fall back to 80 if it is unable to do

           String to be printed at the beginning of each line.

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

           The number of spaces between columns. One space by default.
