TabularText

TabularText helps you create files composed of lines with fields in fixed positions. Yes, people still use that. Yes, a more structured format would be best.

Example, writing

builder.line do |l| 
  l.field 'Name has 30 chars', 30
  l.field 1, 6
  l.field 27
end

will generate

Name has 30 chars             00000127

A more detailed README will be written the day anyone thinks about using this.
