I have a space delimited text file with multiple columns 102 columns. I want to break it up into 100 files labelled 1.txt through 100.txt (n.txt). Each text file will contain the first two columns and in addition the nth column (that corresponds to n.txt). The third file will contain the first three columns and the fourth file will contain columns 1,2 and 4 and so on.
I have a simple request. I have a file in w3c format. Each file has 2 header lines. Rest of the lines are 16 columns each. They are separated by Tab. I need to discard the first 2 lines and then write each column of the txt file into a seperate column of CSV. I tried the command below but that results in all the text columns ending up in the first column in CSV.
