Treating everything as a string is the way through which the great power and versatility of UNIX tools is achieved. However, sometimes the constant parsing of strings gets a bit cumbersome.
UXY is a tool to manipulate UXY format, which is a basically a two-dimensional table that's both human- and machine-readable.
The format is deliberately designed to be as similar to the output of standard tools, such as ls or ps, as possible.
UXY tool also wraps some common UNIX tools and exports their output in UXY format. Along with converters from/to other common data formats (e.g. JSON) it is meant to allow for quick and painless access to the data.
