      Reformat a string array into multi-columns.


Calling Sequence

      out = multicol(in)


      in = input 1-d string array to reformat. in

Keyword Parameters


        LINES=ln how many lines per page (def=50).
          This is in addition to a page number and column headers.
        COLUMNS=col how many columns per page (def=2).
        SPACES=sp array of spaces before each column (def=none).
          Reuses last element repeatedly if needed.
        HEADER=h column header string array, must be
          same width as IN, getting this right may be tricky.
        /PAGE means print page number.
        TOP=txt Line of text for top of each page.


      out = reformated string array. out
        2-d array: out(lines, pages), so
        out(*,0) is first page.

Common Blocks


      Notes: input string array may already have several
        columns of text. For example: let A and B be 1-d
        arrays, like fltarr(20). Let SA=string(transpose(A)),
        and SB=string(transpose(b)). Then S=SA+SB is a one
        column string array with A(i) and B(i) in each element.
        S may be sent to MULTICOL to reformat to several columns.
