Transpose from 2nd column till the last column

Hi

I have 5 columns like this

Code:
a b c d e
f g h i j
k l m n o

From 2nd column till the 5th column of every record, I would like to transpose them as rows, so my output file contains only one row

Code:
a
b
c
d
e
f
g
h
i
j
k
l
m
n
o

Thanks

f g h i j
k l m n o" | tr ' ' '\n'

Thanks Pikk45, but my input file has more than 2000 columns.

So? tr doesn't care. It just deals char by char, so it can handle rows and columns of any size.

Is this taking too much to print??

try sed -e 's/\s/\n/g' file

That's ironic, since sed may have problems with huge lines, but tr never will!
