col1    col2    col3 
 12      14       15

sed "s/^ *//;s/ *$//;s/ \{1,\}/|/g" inputfile > outputfile.txt

The above should work

awk '{$1=$1}1' OFS="|" infile

awk '{$1=$1}NR>1' OFS="|" infile

Hi raghu, in awk, if any of the fields ($1, $2 etc) gets a new value the enitre record (in this case a line) gets recalculated and the output field separator is applied so that it now contains "|" instead of tabs or spaces. After the brackets the "1" ensures that the recalculated records get printed..
