cut - remove sections from each line of files


   cut OPTION... [FILE]...


   Print selected parts of lines from each FILE to standard output.

   With no FILE, or when FILE is -, read standard input.

   Mandatory  arguments  to  long  options are mandatory for short options

   -b, --bytes=LIST
          select only these bytes

   -c, --characters=LIST
          select only these characters

   -d, --delimiter=DELIM
          use DELIM instead of TAB for field delimiter

   -f, --fields=LIST
          select only these fields;  also print any line that contains  no
          delimiter character, unless the -s option is specified

   -n     (ignored)

          complement the set of selected bytes, characters or fields

   -s, --only-delimited
          do not print lines not containing delimiters

          use  STRING  as  the  output delimiter the default is to use the
          input delimiter

   -z, --zero-terminated
          line delimiter is NUL, not newline

   --help display this help and exit

          output version information and exit

   Use one, and only one of -b, -c or -f.  Each LIST is  made  up  of  one
   range,  or  many ranges separated by commas.  Selected input is written
   in the same order that it is read, and is written exactly  once.   Each
   range is one of:

   N      N'th byte, character or field, counted from 1

   N-     from N'th byte, character or field, to end of line

   N-M    from N'th to M'th (included) byte, character or field

   -M     from first to M'th (included) byte, character or field
