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 behavior 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 :
