Bash - output classified in columns


My friend Jonathan just passed me another nice CLI tip

Sometimes, some commands output are not really readable :

Example : $ mount

Readability can be improved by piping “mount” into the command “column”

$ mount | column -t

There are so many little useful commands like these under Linux, I wish I knew them all. Any other similar tips are welcomed !
