pt-align reads lines and splits them into words. It counts how many words each line has, and if there is one number that predominates, it assumes this is the number of words in each line. Then it discards all lines that dont have that many words, and looks at the 2nd line that does. It assumes this is the first non-header line. Based on whether each word looks numeric or not, it decides on column alignment. Finally, it goes through and decides how wide each column should be, and then prints them out.
This is useful for things like aligning the output of vmstat or iostat so it is easier to read.
