        I was working on a midterm for my unix class when i found this one... I 
use paste with the delimiter set to nothing so it was the -d option with just 
open and then closed quotes.  Whatever character came after the closed quotes 
showed up as the 4th column... not sure how to explain it since i'm still a 
newbe and all... guess you'll have to see it to understand...

        cut -c1 ssn > 1ssn ; cut -c2,3 ssn > mssn ; cut -c4 ssn > 4ssn ; paste 
-d'' 4ssn mssn 1ssn 
        I had a file that was a column of social security numbers and we were 
suppose to reveres the last and first digits.
