Some can please help me, how to insert a 'tab' or some
spaces between the selecte set of characters using the cut command in unix

I am using the following command:

cut -c 1-19,30-39,51-59,71-79,91-99 test.txt

Thanks in advance
Laxsun

You can try something like this ...

$ cat i
1223456767
2323456767

$ awk '{printf "%st%sn",substr($0,0,3), substr($0,4,3)}' i | more

122 345
232 345

You can change the tab (t) with other suitable delimiters you want.

Hope this would be useful .
