Use one, and only one of -b, -c or -f. Each LIST is made up of one
range, or many ranges separated by commas. Selected input is written
in the same order that it is read, and is written exactly once.
Each range is one of:
N'th byte, character or field, counted from 1
from N'th byte, character or field, to end of line
from N'th to M'th (included) byte, character or field
from first to M'th (included) byte, character or field
With no FILE, or when FILE is -, read standard input.
