              do not remove output files on errors

       -n, --digits=DIGITS
              use specified number of digits instead of 2

       -s, --quiet, --silent

       Read standard input if FILE is -.  Each PATTERN may be:

              copy up to but not including specified line number

              copy up to but not including a matching line

              skip to, but not including a matching line

              repeat the previous pattern specified number of times

       {*}    repeat the previous pattern as many times as possible

       A line OFFSET is a required `+' or `-' followed by a positive integer.
