Tableconvert is a plugin which helps on converting a tabulator
separated selection into a table.


This version of the plugin is installed with the combined
geany-plugins release. Please check README of this package


After the plugins has been installed successfully, load the plugin
via Geany's plugin manager. This will add a new keybinding into
Geany's list of keybindings inside the preferences dialog. You might
like to set up a keybinding for the function. Once this is done, the
plugin is ready to use.

When using the plugin, just mark the area you like to transform and
push your keybinding. All line endings will be taken as end of a row
and therefor transformed to fitting row endings.

Currently the plugin is supporting
* LaTeX


When transforming HTML, line endings will be replace with <tr> and
</tr>. Occurrences of tabulator will be interpreted as column
separators and replaced by <td> and </td>.

The first line will be treaded as header and surrounded by
<thead></thead> tags. The rest of the table will be included into


In case of working with LaTeX line endings will be replaced with \\
and tabulators with &.

Rectangle selections are currently not supported and might lead to
some weird output you didn't expect -- just don't try it if you have
heart issues or working on an important document :)


At SQL line endings will be replaced with with closing braces )
followed by a komma if is not the last line.

Tabulators will be repace with ', ', so in the end, a tabulator
seperated liste as e.g.

foo	baa
baa foo

will be transformed to

	('foo', 'baa'),
	('baa', 'foo')

The plugin currently is not supporting rectangle selections very

moment. However, at least the second point is planned for some later
