NAME
     colrm — remove columns from a file

SYNOPSIS
     colrm [start [stop]]

DESCRIPTION
     Colrm 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.

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

     The colrm command appeared in 3.0BSD.
