H1 again, ..I tried to fix the syntax but still getting the same error...
awk: syntax error near line 1
if you are on Solaris, use nawk however RT is not supported ( i believe ). RT is supported by GNU awk. another way is to save each line in array, then go through the array, detecting flag=1, and then delete the one item before. Finally print them out. Have a go at it. good luck
