    AWK :

    Using awk in a One Liner

    I began using awk to print specific fields in output. This worked surprisingly well, but the efficiency went through the floor when I wrote large scripts that took minutes to complete. Here, however, is an example of my early awk code:

    ls -l /tmp/foobar | awk ‘{print $1″\t”$9}’

    This code takes some input, such as this:

    -rw-rw-rw- 1 root root 1 Jul 14 1997 tmpmsg

    and generates output like this:

    -rw-rw-rw- tmpmsg
