The general form is simple enough. Assuming, say, a three-column
table, write something like this:

.TS
l l l
---
l l l.
HEAD1<tab>HEAD2<tab>HEAD3
val<tab>val<tab>val<tab>
val<tab>val<tab>val<tab>
...
.TE

I've simplified things somewhat, but if you write your table like
that, I'll fix up any needed formatting afterwards.

For a more complicated example, see the source of syscalls(2).

Thanks,

Michael
