[OS X TeX] Using long tables with a multiple column environment

Does anyone have experience generating tables that extend beyond one 
page and wrapping those tables into another text column on the same 
page.  I've been able to get the supertabular environment to work with 
\twocolumn but not with multicols.  Longtable is in operable with 

What I would like to do is use a perl script to make a long set of data 
suitable for wrapping this way in latex.  This data requires that there 
be three numbers on each line the left one right justified, the center 
one centered and the right one left justified.  It would be best I 
suppose to do this without a table at all, but i don't think that's 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
