\colspan

Command in package table.

Synopsis

\colspan[align][valign]{count}

Description

This command is only allowed inside a table cell. It spreads the cell over count columns.
The optional arguments align and valign specify the horizontal and vertical align of the
cell content. Possible values are "r", "c", "l" for align, meaning "right" resp. "left" resp.
"centered", and "t", "m", "b" for valign", meaning "top" resp. "middle" resp. "bottom". If
omitted, the default horizontal resp. vertical align is applied, which is left-middle.

This command provides the same functionality as the standard LateX \multicolumn command, but
its syntax is different.

See also \rowspan.
