Thank you for purchasing my "Awk One-Liners Explained" e-book! I went through all the one-liners in the articles, improved them, xed a lot of mistakes, added an introduction to Awk one-liners and two new chapters. The two new chapters are Awk Special Variables that summarizes some of the most commonly used Awk variables and Idiomatic Awk that explains what idiomatic Awk is.

You might wonder why I called the article series "famous"? Well, because I based the articles on the famous awk1line. This le has been circulating around Unix newsgroups and forums for years and its very popular among Unix programmers. Thats how I actually learned the Awk language myself. I went through all the one-liners in this le, tried them out and understood how they exactly work.

Then I thought it would be a good idea to explain them on my blog, which I did, and after that I thought, why not turn it into a book? Thats how I ended up writing this book.

The sed book will be based on Eric Pements sed1line. I am also going to create perl1line. If youre interested, subscribe to my blog and follow me on Twitter. That way youll know when I publish all of this! Credits Id like to thank Eric Pement who made the famous awk1line. Id also like to thank waldner and pgas from awk channel on FreeNode IRC network for always helping me with Awk, Madars Virza for proof reading the book before I published it and correcting several glitches, Antons Suspans for proof reading the book after I published it, Abraham Alhashmy for giving advice on how to improve the design of the book, everyone who commented on my blog while I was writing the Awk one-liners article series, and everyone else who helped me with Awk and this book.

Knowing Awk makes you really powerful when working in the shell. Check this out, suppose you want to print the usernames of all users on your system. You can do it very quickly with this one-liner: The one-liner above says: Here are the rst few lines of output when I run this program on my system: This is much longer and you have to compile the program, only then you can run it.

If you make any mistakes, you have to recompile again. Thats why one-liners are called one-liners. They are short, easy to write and they do one and only one thing really well. I am pretty sure youre starting to see how mastering Awk and one-liners can make you much more ecient when working in the shell, with text les and with computers in general.

Here is another one-liner, this one numbers the lines in some le: Isnt this beautiful? And youre done.

I know that a lot of my book readers would argue that Perl does exactly the same, so why should you learn Awk? My answer is very simple, yes, Perl does exactly the same, but why not be the master of the shell?

Why not learn Awk, sed, Perl and other utilities?

Besides Perl was created based on ideas from Awk, so why not learn Awk to see how Perl evolved. That gives you a unique perspective on programming languages, doesnt it? Overall, this book contains 70 well explained one-liners. Once you go through them, you should have a really good understanding of Awk and youll be the master shell problem solver.

Enjoy this book! So how does this one-liner work? In a pattern-action statement either the pattern or the action may be missing. If the pattern is missing, the action is applied to every single line of input.

The rst pattern-action statement is missing the action, therefore we can rewrite it as: An action is applied to the line only if the pattern matches, i. Since 1 is always true, this one-liner translates further into two print statements: This way the 1st line gets printed, the 2nd line gets deleted, then the 3rd line gets printed again, then the 4th gets deleted, etc. The y command substitutes elements in the set1 with the corresponding elements in the set2.

The first y command replaces all lowercase letters with their char-shifted counterparts, and the second y command does the same for the uppercase letters. So for example, character a gets replaced by n , b gets replaced by o , character Z gets replaced by M , etc.

Sed is actually very powerful. It's as powerful as a Turing machine, meaning you can write any computer program in it. Check out these programs written in sed.

Run them as sed -f file. See the quality of my work before you buy the e-book.
