I have a csv file and want to edit just the first column containing title of scientific papers by deleting everything after the ";" sign.
So a typical title would have the following form:
long scientific title here;other stuff I want to delete including the semicolon (no space between ; and the text)
I want the title to look like this:
long scientific title here
How can I achieve that using either
awk (on macOS if this matters)?
