Aligning data

Hi Guys,
How can you align data getting the UID, GID HOSTNAME in same column

uid=1010(faculty) gid=700(teacher) groups=700(teacher), 800(models)

uid=1010(OSAD) gid=700(teacher) groups=700(teacher), 809(staff)

HOSTNAME    UID   username        GID     GROUPS         OTHERGROUP
server1        1010    (faculty)      700       teacher          models

server2         1010    (OSAD)      700       teacher          staff

Hi Scott,

If this is not possible.

HOSTNAME    UID   username        GID     GROUPS         OTHERGROUP
server1        1010    (faculty)      700       teacher          models

server2         1010    (OSAD)      700       teacher           staff

then this output is okay. something like a segregation
server1        1010    (faculty)      700       teacher          models

server2         1010    (OSAD)      700       teacher          staff

Anything is possible, but I asked how you arrived at that output - what code you used to get the output.

You asked "how do I align my output?", not "can you write my script for me?", the answer to which, of course, is "no"!

Please post classroom or homework problems in the homework forum under the homework rules shown there.

Please also review the rules, which you agreed to when you registered, if you have not already done so.

Thank You.
