COLRM(1)		FreeBSD	General	Commands Manual		      COLRM(1)

NAME
     colrm -- remove columns from a file

SYNOPSIS
     colrm [start [stop]]

DESCRIPTION
     The colrm utility removes selected	columns	from the lines of a file.  A
     column is defined as a single character in	a line.	 Input is read from
     the standard input.  Output is written to the standard output.

     If	only the start column is specified, columns numbered less than the
     start column will be written.  If both start and stop columns are speci-
     fied, columns numbered less than the start	column or greater than the
     stop column will be written.  Column numbering starts with	one, not zero.

     Tab characters increment the column count to the next multiple of eight.
     Backspace characters decrement the	column count by	one.

ENVIRONMENT
     The LANG, LC_ALL and LC_CTYPE environment variables affect	the execution
     of	colrm as described in environ(7).

EXIT STATUS
     The colrm utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an	error occurs.

SEE ALSO
     awk(1), column(1),	cut(1),	paste(1)

HISTORY
     The colrm command appeared	in 3.0BSD.
