How do I run an awk script?


If I create a small awk file called find.awk:

{
split("hello world how are you", a)
for (i=1; i<=5; i++)
print a[i]
}

and run the command:

awk -f find.awk

...it waits for input from the keyboard. What should I be doing to get it to run, then return to a command prompt?

Dave
