NAME
       colrm - remove characters from specified columns within each line

SYNOPSIS
       colrm [ startcol [ endcol ] ]

DESCRIPTION
       colrm  removes  selected  columns  from a text file.  The text is taken
       from standard input and copied to the standard output with  the  speci-
       fied columns removed.

       startcol  and  endcol  are  specified, all columns between startcol and
       endcol, inclusive, are removed.
