If you are going to print tablular information…

…in a console as a result of some debugging or control command, then try to ensure that any column that uses string or such similar output does not have spaces within that column. This helps with parsing output using tools like awk that are able to split by column and help with subsequent slicing and dicing of the information (specially when debugging).
