tal is a filter that reads in lines from standard input. The lines are sent to
standard output with common trailing characters aligned so that they all begin
and end on the same column of text. This can be used to repair 'broken boxes'
or align the backslashes on long macro definitions in C programs. But tal will
work on any kind of common ending and is especially useful as a filter for the
vim text editor.
