    texttable - module for creating simple ASCII tables

FILE
    /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/texttable.py

DESCRIPTION

    Example:

        table = Texttable()
        table.set_cols_align(["l", "r", "c"])
        table.set_cols_valign(["t", "m", "b"])
        table.add_rows([["Name", "Age", "Nickname"], 
                        ["Mr\nXavier\nHuon", 32, "Xav'"],
                        ["Mr\nBaptiste\nClement", 1, "Baby"]])
        print table.draw() + "\n"

        table = Texttable()
        table.set_deco(Texttable.HEADER)
        table.set_cols_dtype(['t',  # text 
                              'f',  # float (decimal)
                              'e',  # float (exponent)
                              'i',  # integer
                              'a']) # automatic
        table.set_cols_align(["l", "r", "r", "r", "l"])
        table.add_rows([["text",    "float", "exp", "int", "auto"],
                        ["abcd",    "67",    654,   89,    128.001],
                        ["efghijk", 67.5434, .654,  89.6,  12800000000000000000000.00023],
                        ["lmn",     5e-78,   5e-78, 89.4,  .000000000000128],
                        ["opqrstu", .023,    5e+78, 92.,   12800000000000000000000]])
        print table.draw()

    Result:

CLASSES
    class Texttable
     |  Methods defined here:
     |  
     |  __init__(self, max_width=80)
     |      Constructor
     |      
     |      - max_width is an integer, specifying the maximum width of the table
     |      - if set to 0, size is unlimited, therefore cells won't be wrapped
     |  
     |  add_row(self, array)
     |      Add a row in the rows stack
     |      
     |      - cells can contain newlines and tabs
     |  
     |  add_rows(self, rows, header=True)
     |      Add several rows in the rows stack
     |      
     |      - The 'rows' argument can be either an iterator returning arrays,
     |        or a by-dimensional array
     |      - 'header' specifies if the first row should be used as the header
     |        of the table
     |  
     |  draw(self)
     |      Draw the table
     |      
     |      - the table is returned as a whole string
     |  
     |  header(self, array)
     |      Specify the header of the table
     |  
     |  reset(self)
     |      Reset the instance
     |      
     |      - reset rows and header
     |  
     |  set_chars(self, array)
     |      Set the characters used to draw lines between rows and columns
     |      
     |      - the array should contain 4 fields:
     |      
     |          [horizontal, vertical, corner, header]
     |      
     |      - default is set to:
     |      
     |          ['-', '|', '+', '=']
     |  
     |  set_cols_align(self, array)
     |      Set the desired columns alignment
     |      
     |      - the elements of the array should be either "l", "c" or "r":
     |      
     |          * "l": column flushed left
     |          * "c": column centered
     |          * "r": column flushed right
     |  
     |  set_cols_dtype(self, array)
     |      Set the desired columns datatype for the cols.
     |      
     |      - the elements of the array should be either "a", "t", "f", "e" or "i":
     |      
     |          * "a": automatic (try to use the most appropriate datatype)
     |          * "t": treat as text
     |          * "f": treat as float in decimal format
     |          * "e": treat as float in exponential format
     |          * "i": treat as int
     |      
     |      - by default, automatic datatyping is used for each column
     |  
     |  set_cols_valign(self, array)
     |      Set the desired columns vertical alignment
     |      
     |      - the elements of the array should be either "t", "m" or "b":
     |      
     |          * "t": column aligned on the top of the cell
     |          * "m": column aligned on the middle of the cell
     |          * "b": column aligned on the bottom of the cell
     |  
     |  set_cols_width(self, array)
     |      Set the desired columns width
     |      
     |      - the elements of the array should be integers, specifying the
     |        width of each column. For example:
     |      
     |              [10, 20, 5]
     |  
     |  set_deco(self, deco)
     |      Set the table decoration
     |      
     |      - 'deco' can be a combinaison of:
     |      
     |          Texttable.BORDER: Border around the table
     |          Texttable.HEADER: Horizontal line below the header
     |          Texttable.HLINES: Horizontal lines between rows
     |          Texttable.VLINES: Vertical lines between columns
     |      
     |         All of them are enabled by default
     |      
     |      - example:
     |      
     |          Texttable.BORDER | Texttable.HEADER
     |  
     |  set_precision(self, width)
     |      Set the desired precision for float/exponential formats
     |      
     |      - width must be an integer >= 0
     |      
     |      - default value is set to 3
