df output is not aligned.

When I issue a "df" command the columns of the output are not aligned.

QMN012:.../oracle> df -k

Is there a way to format the output of the "df" command so all columns are aligned and it is more readable ?

#! /bin/nawk -f
# formatDF.nawk 


                     lineArray[NR,i] = $i
                     if ( NF > numFields ) numFields = NF
                     if ( length($i) > lineLength[i] ) lineLength[i] = length($i)
                if ( x == 1 ){
                               printf("%-"lineLength[y]"s ", lineArray[x,y])
                        printf("%s %s\n", lineArray[x,numFields -1], lineArray[x,numFields])
                else {
                          printf("%-"lineLength[y]"s ", lineArray[x,y])

df -k | formatDF.nawk

This is written purely for the output of df -k/df -h. It is not intended as a general column allignment script.
