Thank you - specifically for your awk and sed articles. I know this is somewhat of a comment faux paux ( asking a question about a different post ), but I am hoping you can answer a question regarding awk's word boundaries. I see you haven't answered your awk post recently so here goes:
I am trying to sort and analyze a large number of Dublin Core records for quality and statistical element usage using awk. The data is in tab-delim format and looks like this:
Title Hello Dolly
Series Title books of marginal worth: dolly
The documentation says that Gnu AWK supports word boundaries with \. But is this really true?
When I use the pattern /\/ it pulls
"Title-Alternative" also. The documentation claims
that this should not happen. What's the real scoop?
(why do I need your e-mail?)
It would be nice if you left your e-mail address. Sometimes I want to send a private message, or just thank for the great comment. Having your e-mail really helps.
I will never ever spam you.

* use <pre lang="lang">...</pre> to insert a syntax highlighted code snippet.
For example, <pre lang="python">...</pre> will insert Python highlighted code.
* use <code>...</code> to highlight a variable or a single shell command.
* use <a href="url" nospam>title</a> to insert links.
<a href="url" nospam>title</a>
* use other HTML tags, such as, <b>, <i>, <blockquote>, <sup>, <sub> for text formatting.

I love to read science books. They make my day and I get ideas for awesome blog posts, such as Busy Beaver, On Functors, Recursive Regular Expressions and many others.
Take a look at my Amazon wish list, if you're curious about what I have planned reading next, and want to surprise me. :)
