Formatted output of shell script

Hello,

I am working on one script which is giving output as a pipe "|" separated

abcd | efgh | 20090745
abcdefgh | efg | 20090622

Can any one please help me i want it to be formatted as pipe will be aligned, or the output looks like a table.

awk -F'|' '{ printf("%20s|%20s|%20s\n", $1,$2,$3) }' yy

yy contains your Data

Thanks

seems perl format can help you some.

Code:
format STDOUT =
@<<<<<<<<<<<<|@<<<<<<<<<<<<|@>>>>>>>>>>
$first   $second    $third
.
while(<DATA>){
	($first,$second,$third)=split("[|]",$_);
	write;
}
write;
__DATA__
abcd | efgh | 20090745
abcdefgh | efg | 20090622
