Process structured text files with Miller


John Guy provides his program, Miller, with some very extensive documentation. Both the manual and the help options provide useful guidance for your work. The source code for the tools, and much more, is available for download from the Miller project website.

Miller is useful for converting, for visually enhancing the output of structured text files, and for many more sorting and evaluation tasks, although the individual commands do not offer the same functionality as their Unix counterparts.
