==== Description: ====
`linecut' outputs selected lines from files/streams. The steering motivation
to develop such a tool was to provide missing functionality not found within
head, tail & sed (or which could "only" be invoked by combining these
utilities via pipes). It features line-numbering (as seen in coreutils' cat),
operates on multiple files and has a diversity of range specifications. Ranges
may consist of absolute, relative-to-EOF, or relative from previous
(advancement) line positions. Multiple ranges can be chained, but that
requires that they don't overlap. Furthermore, the line-numbering is not
unique to each file and filename headers will be output if requested. The code
is almost complete, albeit some documentation is lacking.
