.SH NAME \- script to display a table in the console
[\fIOPTION\fR]... [\fIFILE\fR]...
\\fR is a command line script that prints the content of a
table for the formats supported by astropy in the console.
The default behavior is to make the table output fit onto a single screen
page. For a long and wide table this will mean cutting out inner rows and
columns. To print all the rows or columns use \fB--max-lines=-1\fR or
\fBmax-width=-1\fR, respectively. The complete list of supported formats can
be found at
