If you want detail tutorial, you can visit here
http://www.grymoire.com/Unix/Awk.html

But if you want to start awk on easier note, you should visit here first
http://www.thegeekstuff.com/2010/01/...-filename-fnr/
It will build confidence inside you that you can learn awk and it is no big deal.

I sometimes find it easier to just look at the man page or the source code for small-ish tools like this.

Also, get hold of some smallish examples and study them.
