sed & awk
The most common operation done with sed is substitution, replacing one block of text with another. Awk is a complete programming language. The toupper and tolower functions each take a presumably mixed case string argument and return a new version of the string with all letters translated to the corresponding case.
In addition, this edition covers GNU sed, newly available since the first edition. Unlike many conventional languages, awk is "data driven" -- you specify what kind of data you are interested in and the operations to be performed when that data is found. Sed & awk describes two text processing programs that are mainstays of the UNIX programmer's toolbox.
Sed is a "stream editor" for editing streams of text that might be too large to edit as a single file, or that might be generated on the fly as part of a larger data processing step. Awk does many things for you, breaking the records up into fields, including automatically opening and closing data files, reading records, and counting the records.
While awk provides the features of most conventional programming languages, it also includes some unconventional features, such as extended regular expression matching and associative arrays. Peachpit Press. The convfmt variable specifies the conversion format to use when converting numbers to strings awk used to use OFMT for this purpose.
Used book in Good Condition. Sed & awk describes both programs in detail and includes a chapter of example sed and awk scripts.
