awk output delimiters


I want to change the output of the script - add delimeters - whether they are spaces, commas, dashes, tab spaces. whatever

I tired awk -F"delimeter" but that did not work

sh-3.00$ for i in $( grep cancel: ~casper/data/resource | grep ncs100 | awk "{ print $4 }'
do
echo $i
done
220774
230335
457674
532584
sh-3.00$

what I am looking to do is get :220774, 230335, 457674, 532584 or
or 220774 230335 457674 532584

I want to pass this output to another shell script with the $@ argument variable.

I tired awk -IFS already.

Hi,

Try setting the ORS (output record seperator).

To a space in the followinf example:
.....| grep ncs100 | awk "BEGIN { ORS = " "}{ print $4 }'

Hope this helps

gawk '{FS = "[:,-]+"} {print $3","$5}'

This will delimit on colon, comma, and dash and print two values with a comma between them

put your FS in BEGIN block
