I have a utility bash script from an old laptop that I'm trying to use on my current laptop. It fails because it's passing unknown options to the
column command. Running
man column, I see that this machine is using the BSD version of the command; the script is written for the Linux version, which has more options.
I don't have access to the old machine, so I can't say much about what might have been done to set it up, except that it should be very similar to the new one. The current machine is running Pop!OS 20.04, newly installed in the last couple days.
Is there an obviously correct way to specify which of these similar commands I want to use?
