       -d, --delimiter=DELIM

       -f, --fields=LIST

       Use one,	and only one of	-b, -c or -f.  Each LIST is  made  up  of  one

       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

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