Align badly formatted text into a table by selecting the region, then pressing <A-a>. This case aligns the '='; you decide the centering string before pressing return.

You need the perl script "align" from http://www.cs.albany.edu/~mosh/Perl/align.

Mapping is:

:vmap <A-a> !perl ~/perl/align -c:=

Example input:

" x = 1;
" xyz = 245;
" a=1;

Example output:

" x   = 1;
" xyz = 245;
" a   = 1;
