Improve table and text output types to limit width to screen width by default

Description

Automatically adjusts each column's width to longest text length in the column, but force wrapping if the total length of all columns exceeds the screenWidth options setting.

screenWidth defaults to 132 characters OR the value of the COLUMNS environment variable setting if available. Alternatively, you can set screenWidth on a per action basis using something like: --options screenWidth=200. Note that screenWidth is also used when displaying online full help or action specific help using --help.

Tip

MacOS and Linux users can set on their terminal screen or put in their shell profile: EXPORT COLUMNS=$COLUMNS to dynamically adjust output to their terminal's full size.

Compatibility

If you don't like or want automatic column size handling that wraps text is some columns and continues to work like previsous releases use: --options tableNoWrap
