in reply to alignment of text in Text::Table

Here is a small program that shows how to align the data. You should be able to run it.

Please follow 2teez's advise and look at the link he provided to see how to format the code/data in your post. (You can edit your post after you first post it).

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Text::Table; my $tb = Text::Table->new( \'| ', { title => 'Planet', align => 'center', align_title => 'center' }, \" | ", { title => 'Radius', align => 'center', align_title => 'center' }, \" | ", { title => 'Density', align => 'center', align_title => 'center' }, \' |', ); $tb->warnings('on'); $tb->load( [ "Mercury", 2360, "3.7" ], [ "Jupiter", 71030, "1.3" ], ); print $tb->title(); print $tb->rule('-','|'); print $tb->body(0); print $tb->body(1); print $tb->body_rule('-','-'); __END__ Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600] (C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp. C:\perlp\Text_Table>perl | Planet | Radius | Density | |---------|--------|---------| | Mercury | 2360 | 3.7 | | Jupiter | 71030 | 1.3 | ------------------------------ C:\perlp\Text_Table>

    Thanks, Cristoforo for your time and effort. Sorry for not formating. It's my first post and I am not well versed. I have corrected the post as you and 2teez pointed. Following your advice I got what I wanted. Thanks and cheers
