Hi all,

I am trying to create a script that takes an entire file,
drops the first 19 characters from each line and creates a new file.

I am missing something easy but I am not seeing it.

rm  output.txt
cat test.txt | \
while read LINE
do
        newline=`echo $LINE | cut -f 19-`
        echo $newline >> output.txt
done
           
test.txt is below
