NAME
       col1 .. col9, NF - awk and print a column (based on the name of the program, 1-9)

SYNOPSIS
       col1 [SEPARATOR]

DESCRIPTION
       col1 is a simple script that conveniently splits and prints a given column, where the col‐
       umn 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 :
