it would be useful that cut handles negative numbers parameters for columns and fields as "from the end" parameters. One could select the last field with -f -1 for example. (Currently, -f -1 do the same that -f 1.)
I didn't find a previous request that is similar in coreutils archive.
I think using awk or something similar is overkill for solving that problem.
Let me know what you think about it.
Best regards,
