Usage

An easy example is to tabulate your /etc/passwd file. Here are the first 10 non-comment lines from my /etc/passwd file.

$ grep -v ^# /etc/passwd |head
nobody:*:-2:-2:Unprivileged User:/var/empty:/usr/bin/false
root:*:0:0:System Administrator:/var/root:/bin/sh
daemon:*:1:1:System Services:/var/root:/usr/bin/false
_uucp:*:4:4:Unix to Unix Copy Protocol:/var/spool/uucp:/usr/sbin/uucico
_taskgated:*:13:13:Task Gate Daemon:/var/empty:/usr/bin/false
_networkd:*:24:24:Network Services:/var/networkd:/usr/bin/false
_installassistant:*:25:25:Install Assistant:/var/empty:/usr/bin/false
_lp:*:26:26:Printing Services:/var/spool/cups:/usr/bin/false
_postfix:*:27:27:Postfix Mail Server:/var/spool/postfix:/usr/bin/false
_scsd:*:31:31:Service Configuration Service:/var/empty:/usr/bin/false

And again run through tabulate.

$ grep -v ^# /etc/passwd |head |go run tabulate.go -I :
nobody            * -2 -2 Unprivileged User             /var/empty         /usr/bin/false
root              * 0  0  System Administrator          /var/root          /bin/sh
daemon            * 1  1  System Services               /var/root          /usr/bin/false
_uucp             * 4  4  Unix to Unix Copy Protocol    /var/spool/uucp    /usr/sbin/uucico
_taskgated        * 13 13 Task Gate Daemon              /var/empty         /usr/bin/false
_networkd         * 24 24 Network Services              /var/networkd      /usr/bin/false
_installassistant * 25 25 Install Assistant             /var/empty         /usr/bin/false
_lp               * 26 26 Printing Services             /var/spool/cups    /usr/bin/false
_postfix          * 27 27 Postfix Mail Server           /var/spool/postfix /usr/bin/false
_scsd             * 31 31 Service Configuration Service /var/empty         /usr/bin/false

And again rendered using the mysql renderer.

$ grep -v ^# /etc/passwd |head |go run tabulate.go -I : -r mysql
