gawk: Sample Data Files

 
 1.2 Data files for the Examples
 ===============================
 
 Many of the examples in this Info file take their input from two sample
 data files.  The first, 'mail-list', represents a list of peoples' names
 together with their email addresses and information about those people.
 The second data file, called 'inventory-shipped', contains information
 about monthly shipments.  In both files, each line is considered to be
 one "record".
 
    In 'mail-list', each record contains the name of a person, his/her
 phone number, his/her email address, and a code for his/her relationship
 with the author of the list.  The columns are aligned using spaces.  An
 'A' in the last column means that the person is an acquaintance.  An 'F'
 in the last column means that the person is a friend.  An 'R' means that
 the person is a relative:

    The data file 'inventory-shipped' represents information about
 shipments during the year.  Each record contains the month, the number
 of green crates shipped, the number of red boxes shipped, the number of
 orange bags shipped, and the number of blue packages shipped,
 respectively.  There are 16 entries, covering the 12 months of last year
 and the first four months of the current year.  An empty line separates
 the data for the two years:
