    Re: Difference between awk and sed scripting

    The awk and sed both can be the scripting languages. The Scripting Language or an extension language can be a programming language that can allows the control of 1 or more software an programs. The scripts can be different from the code of programs, as they can be an basically written in a distinct language and can be often at least changed or formed by an end-user.

    Re: Difference between awk and sed scripting

    awk and sed both originated in UNIX.

    At the highest level of description,

    awk is a tokenizer.
    sed is an automated editor (stream editor).


    Examples:

    awk '{ print $2 }' "51 52 53"
    Prints "52" - extract the second token/field.

    sed 's/52/XX/' "51 52 53"
    Prints "51 XX 53" - substitutes (s) 52 with XX



    In windows, I use biterscripting to do similar things. Corresponding examples.

    wex "2" "51 52 53"
    Prints "52" - extract the second token/field. wex = word extractor

    sal "^52^" "XX" "51 52 53"
    Prints "51 XX 53" - substitutes (s) 52 with XX. sal = string alterer






    All commands are pretty powerful, especially combined with file loops. It's good to know these commands.

    Re: Difference between awk and sed scripting

    AWK is a complete pattern scanning and processing language, it is most commonly used as a Unix command-line filter to reformat the output of other commands. but

    SED is a simple but powerful computer program used to apply various pre-specified textual transformations to a sequential stream of text data.
