Full Discussion: Use of "CUT" command.
Top Forums Shell Programming and Scripting Use of "CUT" command. Post 98083 by blowtorch on Monday 6th of February 2006 03:48:06 AM
You cannot use shell variables inside an awk command directly. Read up on awk programming to know how to do this. And since you are so keen on using awk to read the variables, try this:

awk -F',' '{print $1," ",$2," ",$3}' test|while read first second third; do
   echo $first $second $third
