Bug #2385: cut: "-" doesn't work for standard input

Author: Tim Darby
Status: Resolved
Priority: Low
Target version: 

The man page for cut states that you can supply a - in place of the filename to read from standard input, but it doesn't work:

> echo foo bar | cut -w -f 1 -
cut: -: No such file or directory

However, this does:

> echo foo bar | cut -w -f 1
