awk is a extremely powerful tool !
i’m always surprised how much you can do with it.
My latest finding is pretty amazing.
Lets say you have a list of numbers , and you want to figure out the bigger number , the lower number , and the average of all the numbers in the list.
you can use the following awk code to print minimum, maximum and average.
The output is going to be :
avg 32.93 | max 100.1 | min 1.5
you can also use this code with decimal numbers
One thought on “Using AWK to display the min the max and the average of a list”
Thank you so much!! I just found this today and it helped me out a bunch!!!
