I have a file that is made up of two vertical parts. On the left side, the data is already formatted and I don't want to change it. I only want to format the data on the right side. Say I have a file with lines like
foo=bar baz # Neato Junk
quux=xyzzy # Bilbo Baggins Ring
with many more lines like that. I only want to modify the text to the right of the '#' character. I selected the text I want with the following expressions:
but if I then try to modify it (say, with
:'<,'>!column -t), it actually modifies the entirety of every line. What is the correct expression to use to only modify the visually selected parts?
