@royniang btw this may be useful to you: 4 line script to align columns with spaces

:; cat bin/es
#!/bin/sh
char='饞惈'
sed -E "s/([^[:blank:]]+)[[:space:]]{2,}/\1${char}/g" |
column -s"${char}" -t

it leaves single spaces alone and assumes >1 are for alignment

the way i use it is
*makes alignment-breaking change*
