table for viewers

Render the table.

Signature

> table --start-number --list --width --expand --expand-deep --flatten --flatten-separator --collapse

Parameters

  • --start-number {int}: row number to start viewing from
  • --list: list available table modes/themes
  • --width {int}: number of terminal columns wide (not output columns)
  • --expand: expand the table structure in a light mode
  • --expand-deep {int}: an expand limit of recursion which will take place
  • --flatten: Flatten simple arrays
  • --flatten-separator {string}: sets a separator when 'flatten' used
  • --collapse: expand the table structure in collapse mode. Be aware collapse mode currently doesn't support width control

Notes

If the table contains a column called 'index', this column is used as the table index instead of the usual continuous index

Examples

List the files in current directory, with indexes starting from 1.

> ls | table -n 1
