Module Name:    src
Committed By:   wiz

Modified Files:
        src/usr.bin/cut: cut.c

Log Message:
>From Igor Sobrado in private email (based on his OpenBSD commit):

    improve POSIX compliance by continuing to process the remaining file
    operands after not finding an input file.

    from the IEEE Std 1003.1-2008 (``POSIX.1'') rationale:

    "Unlike other utilities, some historical implementations of cut
    exit after not finding an input file, rather than continuing to
    process the remaining file operands.  This behavior is prohibited
    by this volume of POSIX.1-2008, where only the exit status is
    affected by this problem."

    joint work with jmc@, who identified the compliance issue, and millert@
