A sharp cut(1) clone

hck is a shortening of hack, a rougher form of cut. A close to drop-in replacement for cut that can use a regex delimiter instead of a fixed string. Additionally this tool allows for specification of the order of the output columns using the same column selection syntax as cut. No single feature of hck on its own makes it stand out over awk, cut, xsv or other such tools. Where hck excels is making common things easy, such as reordering output fields, or splitting records on a weird delimiter. It is meant to be simple and easy to use while exploring datasets.


To install hck, paste this in macOS terminal after installing MacPorts

sudo port install hck
