I am really not sure what you are asking. Could you provide a bit more detail, such as a few lines from the current file (or mock ups), and what you want them to look like ?

sed '$s $ ; ' infile > _tmp_ && mv _tmp_ infile

Some sed implementations support in-place editing with the -i switch:

sed -i '$s $ ; ' infile

And, of course, you can use Perl:

perl -i.orig -pe's/$/;/ if eof' infile

Just run the commands and check the file content.

echo "select * from tab" |awk '{print $0";"}'
