NAME

Array::Columnize - arrange list data in columns.

SYNOPSIS

    use Array::Columnize;
    print columnize($array_ref, $optional_hash_or_hash_ref), "\n";

DESCRIPTION

In showing long lists, sometimes one would prefer to see the values arranged and aligned in columns. Some examples include listing methods of an object, listing debugger commands, or showing a numeric array with data aligned.

EXAMPLES

Simple data example

    print columnize(['a','b','c','d'], {displaywidth=>4}), "\n";

produces:

    a  c
    b  d

With numeric data

    my $data_ref = [80..120];
    print columnize($data_ref, {ljust = 0}) ;

produces:

    80  83  86  89  92  95   98  101  104  107  110  113  116  119
    81  84  87  90  93  96   99  102  105  108  111  114  117  120
    82  85  88  91  94  97  100  103  106  109  112  115  118

while:

    print columnize($data_ref, {ljust = 0, arrange_vertical = 0}) ;

produces:

     80   81   82   83   84   85   86   87   88   89
     90   91   92   93   94   95   96   97   98   99
    100  101  102  103  104  105  106  107  108  109
    110  111  112  113  114  115  116  117  118  119
    120

With String data

    @ary = qw(bibrons golden madascar leopard mourning suras tokay);
    print columnize(\@ary, {displaywidth => 18});

produces:

    bibrons   mourning
    golden    suras   
    madascar  tokay   
    leopard 

    puts columnize \@ary, {displaywidth => 18, colsep => ' | '};

produces:

    bibrons  | mourning
    golden   | suras   
    madascar | tokay   
    leopard
