The idea is a simple commandline (and/or interactive gui) tool that can take a data file (csv perhaps) representing a possibly very large table of data, and print it out with nice pagination and options.
If someone already knows about a LIGHTWEIGHT program that will do this, i'd be interested to know.
There are no doubt some very serious desktop publishing / layout tools (tex, etc.) that can do it, but i think they are way overkill.
The idea came up in this thread, but i can think of lots of places where it would be nice to have such a feature.
