If you're on Windows, Windows Terminal with Cascadia Code ( It's released under the Open Font license, and installing on most Linux distros is not that difficult. Nice ligatures for character combos like "www", "!=", and ".=", arrows, and PowerLine support.

An oldie but surprisingly useful: pr. pr will break large texts into pages or columns for printing. My main use case is converting a single column into multiple columns. Adding the -a flag causes the columns to go across, rather than down. If you're not printing the results, use -t to skip the print header and footer.

A common idiom I use is:
Generate a list | sort | tr -a -t -4 > tee file
