Print Information from ASCII Space-Delimited Table


getcol is a utility for printing values for specific columns in a space-separated ASCII table. Columns are numbered starting with one, and are specfied as a list or range. getcol differs from the Unix cut(1) command in that any number of spaces may separate the fields, and, thus, null fields are not allowed. In version 2.6.11 and later, tabs may be used to separate columns instead of spaces. Entire lines are printed if no columns are specified. A list of filenames may be used by prefacing it with a @. (New in WCSTools 2.6.8)
