Just going through the bash text processing module on DQ and frustrated by the fact that identical options for different commands are not consistent.
column -s',' <-- sets delimiter as
sort -t',' <-- sets delimiter as
cut -d',' <-- sets delimiter as
■■■. Why not just use the same character? And it’s not good enough to say those characters are used already to do other things in those other options. This should not have been allowed to proceed beyond the brainstorming stage when bash was invented. There is a better way. This just feels lazy.
