Ov's developers describe it as a "feature-rich terminal pager." These features include good support for Unicode and especially East Asian characters, support for compressed files, and mouse support. Ov also includes a number of features for dealing with delimited files, such as the ability to toggle zebra striping, keep header labels at the top of the screen, and highlight the currently selected column. The `ov` README provides a number of usage examples and instructions for using `ov` to view tabular data from within the `mysql` and `psql` tools. Many operating systems include Ov in their repositories, but for those that do not, the Ov site offers executables for Windows, macOS, and Linux systems.
