Sample text

If you use csh, you’re on your own: 8 Chapter 1: Getting Started with awk As mentioned in the section “One-Shot Throwaway awk Programs” earlier in this chapter, you can enclose small- to medium-sized programs in single quotes, in order to keep your shell scripts self-contained. , a single quote) into a comment (or anywhere else in your program). The shell interprets the quote as the closing quote for the entire program. As a result, usually the shell prints a message about mismatched quotes, and if awk actually runs, it will probably print strange messages about syntax errors.

However, the following (extreme) pipeline prints a surprising 1: $ echo | awk ’BEGIN { RS = "a" } ; { print NF }’ 1 There is one field, consisting of a newline. The value of the built-in variable NF is the number of fields in the current record. Reaching the end of an input file terminates the current input record, even if the last character in the file is not the character in RS. ) The empty string "" (a string without any characters) has a special meaning as the value of RS. It means that records are separated by one or more blank lines and nothing else.

In the awk language, a comment starts with the sharp sign character (#) and continues to the end of the line. The # does not have to be the first character on the line. The awk language ignores the rest of a line following a sharp sign. For example, we could have put the following into advice: # This program prints a nice friendly message. It helps # keep novice users from being afraid of the computer. " } You can put comment lines into keyboard-composed throwaway awk programs, but this usually isn’t very useful; the purpose of a comment is to help you or another person understand the program when reading it at a later time.
