Given a tab separated data file (or another separator), how would you compute the mean of a column?
Too bad that there are no simple binaries that performs simple mathematical operations over those kind of files.

If you have R installed you can also use:
You can also change the function (mean) to other statistical functions, say:
If you want to specify the column, say, use column 3, then you use the notation [,3]
