       cut - remove sections from each line of files

       cut [OPTION]... [FILE]...

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

       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

       --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      Nth byte, character or field, counted from 1

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

       N-M    from Nth to Mth (included) byte, character or field

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

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