LXer: Plain English Explanation Of An Awk Statement For Linux Or Unix

Published at LXer:

An attempt to explain an awk program, with a nested if statement within a for loop, in plain English. Today's post is going to be a follow-up to yesterday's post on convoluted column arithmetic in awk. I have a nasty habit of listing all my stuff as "beginner" material. Mostly this is because I try to write my material for the middle level to newer user of Unix, Linux, Perl, etc. I have absolutely no interest in picking apart the finer points of quantum mathematics or advanced concepts in programming or operating system design and implementation.
