This post is about a possible enhancement to the "expand" command included in coreutils.

I oten use expand to format scripts output by manually setting tabs stop. The idea would be to add an option to "expand" to be able to auto-set tabstops by analyzing first <n> lines of test (0 for analyzing whole stream) so that the TS would be set to the minimum number of spaces to obtains clean columns.

Best regards
