SYNOPSIS

pxspread [ -fhkLPrSv ] [ -s cell ] [ -R n ] [ -C n ] [ -n n ] [ -d c ]

DESCRIPTION

Pxspread is used to prepare data for input to the spread sheet calculator xspread(1). It accepts normal ascii data on standard input. Standard output is a xspread file. With no options, pxspread starts the spread sheet in cell A0. Strings are right justified. All data on a line is entered on the same row; new input lines cause the output row number to increment by one. The default delimiters are tab and space. The column formats are set to one larger than the number of columns required to hold the largest value in the column.

Options:

-C n Increment by n on each new output column.

-d c Use the single character c as the delimiter between input fields.

-f Omit column width calculations. This option is for preparing data to be merged with an existing spreadsheet. If the option is not specified, the column widths calculated for the data read by pxspread will override those already set in the existing spreadsheet.

-h Print a short usage/help.

-k Keep all delimiters. This option causes the output cell to change on each new delimiter encountered in the input stream. The default action is to condense multiple delimters to one, so that the cell only changes once per input data item.

-L Left justify strings.

-n n Output n rows before advancing to the next column. This option is used when the input is arranged in a single column and the spread sheet is to have multiple columns, each of which is to be length n.

-P Plain numbers only. A field is a number only when there is no imbeded [-+eE].

-r Output the data by row first then column. For input consisting of a single column, this option will result in output of one row with multiple columns instead of a single column spread sheet.

-R n Increment by n on each new output row.

-s cell Start the top left corner of the spread sheet in cell. For example, -s B33 will arrange the output data so that the spread sheet starts in column B, row 33.

-S All numbers are strings.

-v Print the version of pxspread
