It's OK to introduce a line break to insure columnar format for a terminal, but output to a plain file should put all the info for one package onto just one line. $ yum list installed > yum.out # redirect stdout to an IF_REG file $ more yum.out [[snip]] NetworkManager.x86_64 1:0.7.2.995-2.git20100225.fc11 @updates [[snip]] Notice the line break between the version "...fc11" and the repo 'updates'. This makes the info hard to parse using 'read' in bash, for instance. Also there are mystery repos such as 'installed': ConsoleKit.x86_64 0.3.0-8.fc11 installed
