Awk Scripts - bash terminal?

Post Reply New Thread Subscribe

I have written an awk script which reads a .html page's source code and splits it into different categories like links, images, etc.

On a linux machine, to run it i type:
awk awkfile index.html(reading index.html)

When I do in Darwin (bash), nothing happens. It just goes back to command prmopt. Do I have to use another command or am i supposed to use other different terminals? (csh, etc)

Thanks in advance.

I think maybe changing shells may work, type man awk to see if the shell has that command in Darwin.
