You have a file like this:
Code:
10 20 30

and you want this:
Code:
10
20
30

Correct?
try:
Code:
awk ' { for(i=1;i<=NF;i++)
          { print $i }
        } ' filename

if you want the data to be displayed in vertical axis from horizontal axis delimited by a tab

then u have the answer in ur question itself

tr '\t' '\n' < inputfile
# 4

thanks again
