Details? Is the awk script inside of a shell script? Which shell?
sh or bash?
If the awk script is inside the shell script, please rip it out
into it's own file and change the shell script accordingly. Note
that different systems and different shells have different maximum
line lengthes. Writing too long input lines is non-portable.
