col5

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 :
