From my question on StackOverflow (CC BY-SA 3.0):

Anyone know of a command-line CSV viewer for Linux/OS X? I’m thinking of something like less but that spaces out the columns in a more readable way. (I’d be fine with opening it with OpenOffice Calc or Excel, but that’s way too overpowered for just looking at the data like I need to.) Having horizontal and vertical scrolling would be great.
