The version of the column command available via Util Linux is far more comprehensive than the one included in bsdmainutils. It includes extensive options for output formatting. I would really like to use the util linux version on 18.04 but I can't work out how to install it.
The current command is installed by
$ dpkg -S "$( which column )" bsdmainutils: /usr/bin/column
util-linux package does not seem to include the command:
$ dpkg -L util-linux | grep column | wc -l 0
My question is how can I install the comprehensive version of this command? Is there a snap somewhere or do I need to build it from source?
