Unhappy Trying to use cut command to limit "excess text" from a file.


The man pages are not helping. Tried varios websites to no avail.

Need a lot more detail. Please give an example of the text before extract and an example of what you want the result to look like.
Also, please add your distro's name & version to your profile for future ref.
