    A  pipeline is a sequence of one or more commands separated by one of the control operators | or |&.  The
    format for a pipeline is:

           [time [-p]] [ ! ] command [ [||&] command2 ... ]

    The standard output of command is connected  via  a  pipe  to  the  standard  input  of  command2.   This
    connection  is performed before any redirections specified by the command (see REDIRECTION below).  If |&
    is used, the standard error of command is connected to command2's standard input through the pipe; it  is
    shorthand  for  2>&1  |.   This  implicit  redirection  of  the  standard  error  is  performed after any
    redirections specified by the command.

    The return status of a pipeline is the exit status of the last command, unless  the  pipefail  option  is
    enabled.   If  pipefail  is  enabled,  the  pipeline's return status is the value of the last (rightmost)
    command to exit with a non-zero status, or zero if all commands exit successfully.  If the reserved  word
    !   precedes  a  pipeline, the exit status of that pipeline is the logical negation of the exit status as
    described above.  The shell waits for all commands in the pipeline to terminate before returning a value.

    If the time reserved word precedes a pipeline, the elapsed as well as user and system  time  consumed  by
    its execution are reported when the pipeline terminates.  The -p option changes the output format to that
    specified by POSIX.  When the shell is in posix mode, it does not recognize time as a  reserved  word  if
    the  next  token begins with a `-'.  The TIMEFORMAT variable may be set to a format string that specifies
    how the timing information should be displayed; see the description of TIMEFORMAT under  Shell  Variables

    When the shell is in posix mode, time may be followed by a newline.  In this case, the shell displays the
    total user and system time consumed by the shell and its children.  The TIMEFORMAT variable may  be  used
    to specify the format of the time information.

    Each command in a pipeline is executed as a separate process (i.e., in a subshell).
output the last part of files
-n, --lines=K
       output  the  last  K lines, instead of the last 10; or use -n +K to output lines starting with the
remove sections from each line of files
-s, --only-delimited
       do not print lines not containing delimiters
-f, --fields=LIST
       select only these fields;  also print any line that contains no delimiter character, unless the -s
       option is specified
build and execute command lines from standard input
-I replace-str
       Replace occurrences of replace-str in the initial-arguments with names read from  standard  input.
       Also,  unquoted  blanks  do  not  terminate  input  items;  instead  the  separator is the newline
       character.  Implies -x and -L 1.
This  manual  page  documents  the  GNU  version  of  xargs.   xargs reads items from the standard input,
delimited by blanks (which can be protected with double or single quotes or a backslash) or newlines, and
executes  the  command  (default  is  /bin/echo) one or more times with any initial-arguments followed by
items read from standard input.  Blank lines on the standard input are ignored.
-s max-chars
       Use at most max-chars characters per command line, including the command and initial-arguments and
       the  terminating  nulls at the ends of the argument strings.  The largest allowed value is system-
       dependent, and is calculated as the argument  length  limit  for  exec,  less  the  size  of  your
       environment,  less  2048  bytes of headroom.  If this value is more than 128KiB, 128Kib is used as
       the default value; otherwise, the default value is the maximum.  1KiB is 1024 bytes.
