Description Francesco Turco 2012-10-11 14:02:03 UTC
When running "euse --active" from app-portage/gentoolkit- two columns are displayed, the first one with the name of the USE flag and the second one with the details, as described in the man page. The problem is there are USE flag names longer than the width of the first column. For example, this is a partial output from my system:

cheese              [-      ] (-colord)
cli                 [+  D   ]
collectd_plugins_df [-      ]
collectd_plugins_interface[-      ]
collectd_plugins_irq[-      ]
collectd_plugins_load[-      ]
collectd_plugins_memory[-      ]
collectd_plugins_rrdtool[-      ]
collectd_plugins_swap[-      ]
collectd_plugins_syslog[-      ]
colord              [-      ] (-colord)
cracklib            [+  D   ]

My idea is be to swap the columns, because the second column is always 9 characters wide. Anyway I can also notice that sometimes there is additional output, for example in the following case:

colord              [-      ] (-colord)

In man page it is not written what the meaning of the third "column" is, and I'm not able to understand it myself.

Reproducible: Always
