In Linux, I have the following problem with
paste from (GNU coreutils) 8.13:
Trying to set another delimiter than the default (TAB) results in either just printing the first character of the defined delimiter or perfectly ignoring it.
Question: How does one define (multiple) delimiters when using
Simply using, e.g. abc-123 as delimiter would be nice. With "multiple" I mean e.g. 2 TABS instead of one.
The patterns enclosing the delimiter(s) I've tried so far were
All with the same result: Only the first character is accepted or perfectly ignored. I've also tried the short version
-d"\" and multiple instances &ndahs; nothing.
--delimiters="\\"→ Error message
What works perfectly, though not what I want:
--delimiters="\0"→ nothing inbetween
--delimiters="\t"→ TAB, the default. Great.
