Hi guys, someone can help me?
I had to write an awk script that count the number of single a in a file, and counts the number of lines where there are that a...

I wrote only this that give me the total number of a, but I don't know how to find total number of line containing this character:
awk '{for(i=0;i<NF;i++) if ($i=="a") n++} {print "Tot # of a is "n}' filename
