UNIX command output in csv format

I'm just wondering is there any way to capture the output of a unix command in a csv format.

df -h gives the result of filesystem,free space,Used space, use %,mounted on.
Is there a way to capture the command output and format it as comma sparated or fixed length file.

Pipe the standard output of the df -h command to sed and replace spaces with comma.
ex: (korn shell)
Code:
df -h | sed 's/ */,/g' >out.csv

I hope it would help
