I need to use awk to scan a file that consists of lines, each line starting
with an integer, followed by a line of text that should have a period and then
a newline character following that. The script should save the number at the
beginning of the line, and if the line does not have a "period" prior to the
"newline", to print out a message, with the integer number that was at the
beginning of the line.
I do not use awk, but would like to learn. I have some of the "standard"
references, but would like to see more examples of "working" scripts to
aid in my learning. Thanks in advance for any help.
