Source line context is >>> "[ \t\n]"’ in character class [ number 1 <<< But a newline in a regexp constant works with no problem: $ awk ’$0 ˜ /[ \t\n]/’ here is a sample line here is a sample line Control-d gawk does not have this problem, and it isn’t likely to occur often in practice, but it’s worth noting for future reference. In this chapter: • How Input Is Split into Records • Examining Fields • Non-constant Field Numbers • Changing the Contents of a Field • Specifying How Fields Are Separated • Reading Fixed-Width Data • Multiple-Line Records • Explicit Input with getline 3 Reading Input Files In the typical awk program, all input is read either from the standard input (by default, this is the keyboard, but often it is a pipe from another command) or from files whose names you specify on the awk command line.

Matches the empty string at the beginning of a word. For example, /\ Matches the empty string at the end of a word. For example, /stow\>/ matches stow but not stowaway. , the word boundary). \y matches either ball or balls, as a separate word. \B Matches the empty string that occurs between two word-constituent characters. For example, /\Brat\B/ matches crate but it does not match dirty rat. \B is essentially the opposite of \y. There are two other operators that work on buffers.

The value of the built-in variable NF is the number of fields in the current record. Reaching the end of an input file terminates the current input record, even if the last character in the file is not the character in RS. ) The empty string "" (a string without any characters) has a special meaning as the value of RS. It means that records are separated by one or more blank lines and nothing else. See the section “Multiple-Line Records” later in this chapter for more details. If you change the value of RS in the middle of an awk run, the new value is used to delimit subsequent records, but the record currently being processed, as well as records already processed, are not affected.
