cut bug?

I am not sure if this is a bug or just lack of knowledge on my part.  In
Unix I could always use 'cut' to pull the needed fields out of our text
files.  In GNU Utilities I can't find any combination of parameters that
will allow using 'cut' on a file delimited by spaces.  Is it possible to
cut a file using a SPACE as a delimiter between fields?  I got around this
by first substituting a ',' for a space between the fields.  I still feel
there should be a way to use a ' ' (space) as a field delimiter.  Thank
you.      SmileS
