What error are you getting?

Please provide a short sample of k2 in a separate "Code:" block.

Please put code in "Code:" blocks, it makes it easier to read. (If you don't understand "Code:" blocks, ask.)

I assume you have checked the GNU (g)awk manual
Especially here:

Don't know what's the problem there, but wouldn't it be more convenient to use ANDs?

{if ( $7 == d1 && $6 == m1 && $8 == t1 && $9 > 4 ) {print $10} }

Good idea, PMorph.

jdeeptir, where's that sample?

Well . . .

archtoad6, don't worry... this is a kind of user which never replies. There are plenty of them out there. Maybe it's a problem of their short-term memory synapses... ;)

You're right -- I checked his threads/posts -- he seems to not have the courtesy to answer helpers' follow-up Q's. I wonder if he doesn't know about automatically subscribing to his own threads & opting for the e-mail that that sends.

Is this rude enough to warrant a report?

Would it be too rude to post a note about this thread in one of his others -- something like
"Dude please answer your helpers' follow-up Q's at"

I don't think it's a matter of being rude or not. I wonder why it is so important. If the OP is not enough intersted in finding a solution to his problem, despite the helper's efforts, why should we care? I understand it can be irritating, but I prefer to go on and ignore the thread as the OP ignored it and the people who tried to help. It's not worth losing more time.

You're right about losing more time; but I was really interested in the problem, & I am "upset" (read pissed off) that I am not going to get the chance to do so. Furthermore, this may be a cultural difference, but where I come from it's f'g rude to ask a Q & not listen to the answer.

but where I come from it's f'g rude to ask a Q & not listen to the answer.
So you're not parent to teen-agers, I guess ... :D

And this REALLY is enough on this subject. Thread-jacking for
the purpose of venting is about as rude as not responding to
the inquiries from potential helpers.
