gawk: Running Examples

 
 11.1 Running the Example Programs
 =================================
 
 To run a given program, you would typically do something like this:
 
      awk -f PROGRAM -- OPTIONS FILES
 
 Here, PROGRAM is the name of the 'awk' program (such as 'cut.awk'),
 OPTIONS are any command-line options for the program that start with a
 '-', and FILES are the actual data files.
 
    If your system supports the '#!' executable interpreter mechanism
 (⇒Executable Scripts), you can instead run your program directly:
 
      cut.awk -c1-8 myfiles > results
 
    If your 'awk' is not 'gawk', you may instead need to use this:
 
      cut.awk -- -c1-8 myfiles > results
