SYNOPSIS

gawk -i inplace ...

DESCRIPTION

The inplace extension adds two functions named inplace_begin() and inplace_end(). These functions are meant to be invoked from the inplace.awk wrapper which is installed when gawk is.

By default, each named file on the command line is replaced with a new file of the same name whose contents are the results of running the AWK program. If the user supplies an AWK variable named INPLACE_SUFFIX in a BEGIN rule or on the command line, then the inplace extension concatenates that suffix onto the original filename and uses the result as a filename for renaming the original.

EXAMPLE

gawk -i inplace ’script’ files ...


gawk -i inplace -f scriptfile files ...
