gawk, comma delim to fixed length?
Is there a way to program gawk such that a 60 field comma delimited file is converted to a fixed length file? I'd like to set the length of each field.
I tried first editing the file using vi, and changing all commas to tabs, but the variety of data within fields resulted in a "abnormal" (not normalized) file.
If gawk is the wrong utility for the job, I'd like to know that too.
