Command of the day:

awk, gawk
Awk searches for patterns in a file and processes them. It enables a programmer to write small programs in the form of statements to make changes in text files when certain patterns appear or extract data from those files. This command simplifies a process historically done in C or Pascal languages.
More on this command on Awk

Gawk stands for "GNU awk" and is commonly used in Linux.
