comment Can not use `cut -c` (`--characters`) with UTF-8?
Interesting! It looks like -c is using the same code as -b. Did you have a look at the source code? Maybe you can find a hint what -c is actually meant for.

comment What is the difference between the built in echo command and /bin/echo?
Well, the one is built in bash and the other is hanging around on disk. There might be slight differences. Have a look at man 1 echo and help echo.
