      hi christian.brandt

      awk is processing its input line by line. Its script applies
      to one line and with the next line of input the previous one
      is forgotten -- or I have to program a script which read the
      input twice:
      First run to determine the correct alignment spaces, second
      run to apply those -- and this will become more of a hack
      due to the nature of awks processing the input.
      But as mentioned I want to 'use' a tool, not to program one.

      I think, the best will be to hack one in C -- this will run by
      far faster then the script processing done by awk.

      Thanks for your help.

      Keep hacking!
