Hello, I think I've seen discussion here before regarding this, but I have
previously scanned and ignored the messages. Now I need more or less the
Here's the bare-bones situation:
I have a shell script (sh) which calls awk. However, the script can take
several options and these will affect the result I get from the call to
awk. Namely, I want to be able to pass $1, $0, etc. into awk along with
shell variables, such as $foo or whatever.
Basically, how do I protect the "$" in front of the field specifiers
because they are needed in AWK?
