Hi again ...

Could someone please enlight me what's the usecase of --delimiter?

I'd guess that values within lines should be split by delim while
input records (lines) are still terminated by \n. But what would
be the difference to --colsep in this case?

If the assumption above is wrong, what does "This can be used when
the input consists of simply newline-separated items" mean? And
why would I want to use --null in that case?

I'm quite confused by this passage of the manpage.
