Top Forums UNIX for Beginners Questions & Answers How to align/sort the column pairs of an csv file, based on keyword word specified in another file? Post 303034622 by RudiC on Wednesday 1st of May 2019 06:03:50 AM
I don't think you get very far with sort. Try instead
awk -F"\t" '
NR==FNR {for (i=1; i<=3; i++)   {IX = (i-1)*3+1
                                 split ($IX, T, "_")
                                 O[T[1] FS i] = $IX FS FS $(IX+2)
        {for (i=1; i<=3; i++)  printf "%s%s", O[$1 FS i] (O[$1 FS i]?_:FS FS) , i==3?ORS:FS
' file.csv file.key
xop_thy        80    xop_nmg        50    xop_nth        40
avr_irt        70    avr_njk        50    avr_ngt        50
str_tgt        80    str_nhj        60    str_nyu        60
cyv_gty        40                        
vir_plo        20    vir_thk        40    vir_tyk        80
cop_thy        70    cop_thl        40            
                     ijk_yuc        80    ijk_yuc        70

Linux::Distribution::Packages(3pm)			User Contributed Perl Documentation			Linux::Distribution::Packages(3pm)

Linux::Distribution::Packages - list all packages on various Linux distributions SYNOPSIS
use Linux::Distribution::Packages qw(distribution_packages distribution_write); $linux = new Linux::Distribution::Packages({'format' => 'csv', 'output_file' => 'packages.csv'}); $linux->distribution_write(); # Or you can (re)set the options when you write. $linux->distribution_write({'format' => 'xml', 'output_file' => 'packages.xml'}); # If you want to reload the package data $linux->distribution_packages(); DESCRIPTION
This is a simple module that uses Linux::Distribution to guess the linux distribution and then uses the correct commands to list all the packages on the system and then output them in one of three formats: native, csv, and xml. Distributions currently working: debian, ubuntu, fedora, redhat, suse, gentoo, slackware, redflag. The module inherits from Linux::Distribution, so can also use its calls. EXPORT None by default. TODO
* Add the capability to correctly get packages for all recognized distributions. * Seperate out parsing from writing. Parse data to hash and give access to hash. Then write the formatted data from the hash. AUTHORS
