description
         Swap columns, the columns are separated by blank.
         Column maybe is word, or maybe not:
            col1   col2   col3   col4   col5
            command!  -nargs=*  -range  -complete=command

         1. Move cursor on col1, and press  ]c  you will see:
            col2   col1   col3   col4   col5

         2. Move cursor on -range and press [c, you will see:
            command!  -range  -nargs=*  -complete=command

         3. Move cousor on column, means you can put cursor on any character
            of the column, not limit the first character.

         4. If you don't like the default map, just modify the source.
            The map code is on the bottom.

         5. You can swap columns on multiple lines.
            Swap column 1 and column 3 on five lines.

            111  222  333  444  555        333  222  111  444  555
            111  222  333  444  555        333  222  111  444  555
            111  222  333  444  555 ---> 333  222  111  444  555
            111  222  333  444  555        333  222  111  444  555
            111  222  333  444  555        333  222  111  444  555

            Step 1: select multiple lines in visual mode
                          press V (upper case)
                          and then use j or k to select lines
            Step 2: call Swapcols like:
                           :'<,'>Swapcols 1 3
                           (When you press :   '<,'> will come out automatically.)
            Setp 3: press Enter to continue, and you will get the result.

            Remember: the first column number is 1, not 0.
