107 Three awk resources (and one old sed)

Wednesday 14th May, 2008

I use awk (or rather gawk and nawk) a lot, and I was intrigued to find two resources on the internet very recently. This sort of information used to be hard to come by, so it was good to find it.

The first (and IMO the best) resource I found was an awk tutorial called Getting started with awk.

The second was an Awk, Nawk and Gawk cheat sheet.

Add to that my old favourite Handy one-liners for awk, which seems to have taken it's inspiration from the venerable and much-queried Handy one-liners for sed, and you have the four resources hinted at in the title. I hope it proves useful.
