This question basically is exactly the same as this question in Stackoverflow.
Using the syntax of
cut the specification
cut -d '' file should actually work and (given the answers to the question) it seems to work on Linux systems. However, on Mac Os X I get
cut: bad delimiter.
My question is: is there a way to specify a null delimiter in
cut on Mac Os X?
(I know that one could just something else than
cut but I am just wondering now ...).
