Linux column(1) from util-linux-ng for Solaris? Which *.pkg to install?

Hi

On Linux systems there is a command called "column".

Code:
column - columnate lists 
Synopsis

  column [-tx] [-c columns] [-s sep] [file ...] 
  Description

   The column utility formats its input into multiple columns. Rows are filled before columns. Input is taken from file operands, or, by default, from the standard input. Empty lines are ignored.

I wish the same command on Solaris 10 / SPARC. In which package (*.pkg) I will find this command?

A simple script can probably do the same thing unless you need it to obey all those options, what do you need it to do?

Agreed - I'd take 'pr' for the base.
