tabl – wrangling tab-delimited* text files

Tabl (rhymes with babble) is a set of tools for viewing and working with tab-delimited (and CSV) text files. It can automatically handle compressed or uncompressed files.


Tabl is a single binary and can be downloaded from the Github release page for Mac and Linux (x86_64/amd64). This file can be downloaded and copied to any place in your $PATH to install tabl. A Windows binary is also available, but it is untested. No other installation steps are needed.
