awk script

Hi,

I have a file which has regions in numbers like:
Code:
chr1    6845635    6880240

and I want an awk script which extracts only 1000 numbers from the end of the 2nd column. The output should then look like this:
Code:
chr1    6845635    6846635

Kindly help.
warm regards.

My File has different entries in every line.
Code:
chr1    6845635    6880240    
chr1    7151431    7309550    
chr1    57756838    58115263    
chr1    85824530    85961848    
chr1    172100428    172222712

and I want that the script should work for each line adding 1000 as a number from each of the second columns. Like
Code:
chr1 6845635 6846635
chr1 7151431 7152431

and so on...
Thanks

Hello genebuster,

Following may help.

Code:
awk '($3=$2+1000) 1' Input_file

Assuming like your file not having any empty lines init.

Thanks,
R. Singh

If suppose in case you want to keep source formating you can do like this, though its bit lengthy

Code:
awk 'NF { s=""; n=split($0,D,/[^[:space:]]*/); $3 = $2 + 1000; for(i=1;i<=n;i++)s = sprintf("%s%s%s",s,D[i],$i); $0 = s}1' file

chr1    6845635    6846635    
chr1    7151431    7152431    
chr1    57756838    57757838    
chr1    85824530    85825530    
chr1    172100428    172101428
