Script Roundup: permut.vim

Permut (GitHub: jlemetay/permut, License: Vim) by JYLM is a plugin for swapping columns in a text-formatted table. It requires that a common column separator character is used, and the default is |.

Permut is invoked with :[range] Permut col1 col2 [separator].

You might find this plugin useful if you write tables Markdown. I've found Markdown tables can be difficult to manage, so I end up writing tables in another tool then converting them to Markdown later.

The author suggests using Tabular to align text to fit into columns.
