Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am trying to use a simple bash script in the program Grass GIS. The script works well, I just am trying to change the output file slightly. I have basically no experience programing (I had some help with the script), so I'd appreciate any suggestions. Here is the script so far:
So basically this script reads in a bunch of latitudes and longitudes and then passes them into two functions for Grass GIS. This part of the script is functioning as I want. Then it prints out the first column using awk.
What I want to change is to do a second very similar function and print data on the same line as the first piece of information. I am going to just do another r.statistics and retrieve the head instead of the tail from the data. When I place this function in the next line of the script, the resulting file has the piece of data on a second line.
It seems that print writes the data and then moves to a newline. So is there a way to not have it make a newline? Or a way to backspace to the previous line. Or some other way it could work? Then I could just write a space or comma to make a good file to put in a spreadsheet.
