This is choose, a human-friendly and fast alternative to awk and cut.


  • terse field selection syntax similar to Python's list slices
  • negative indexing from end of line
  • optional start/end index
  • zero-indexed
  • reverse ranges
  • slightly faster than cut for sufficiently long inputs, much faster than awk
  • regular expression field separators using Rust's regex syntax
