Where Can I Get It?

How do I do tables in LaTeX?

\begin{tabular}{ r l c }
aligned right & aligned left & aligned center \\
2nd row left cell & middle cell & 2nd row right cell \\
last row left cell & last row mid cell & last row right cell
\end{tabular}

use the {\bf /\begin{tabular} \{ …column alignments … \} } with corresponding ending tag. The {\bf r }, {\bf c }, {\bf l } is part of the table column definition. For each column you want, simply specify each column’s alignment. Cells are partitioned by the {\bf & }, and each column is adjusted dynamically for the cell’s contents. Rows are partitioned by {\bf /\/\ }, the newline syntax.
