Well, colrm is about the closest unix utility I know of...it
chops columns out of files, but I don't know of any way to
restrict what lines are included by it...If you wish to *buy*
a program that'll do this, I know of one for DOS or Windows called
Multi-edit of which I am quite fond; runs 100 or so bucks tho.
An excellent programmer's editor.
