col1(1)				     byobu			       col1(1)

NAME
       col1  ..	 col9,	NF  - awk and print a column (based on the name	of the
       program,	1-9)

SYNOPSIS
       col1 [SEPARATOR]

DESCRIPTION
       col1 is a simple	script that conveniently splits	 and  prints  a	 given
       column,	where  the  column  to print is	the name of the	script program
       you're running (col1-col9).  col2-col9 are symlinks to col1; their  be-
       havior simply changes based on the name called.

       NF can be used to print the last	field.

       The  program  takes  one	 optional  argument, the input field separator
       (whitespace, by default).

EXAMPLES
       Rather than:
	mount |	awk '{print $3}'

       Try:
	mount |	col3

       Instead of:
	cat /etc/passwd	| awk -F":" '{print $7}'

       You can just do:
	cat /etc/passwd	| col7 :

       Or
	cat /etc/passwd	| NF :
