When I run
nawk -F'[>,]' '{print $2, $3}' a.txt | while read A B; do
  echo a is $A   b is $B

on a.txt

I get
a is 39.2956736296775 b is
a is 38.72762798197614 b is
a is 40.25685140137304 b is
a is 39.44522321129584 b is
a is 39.44522321129584 b is
a is 37.63567097374739 b is

Oh and I got the raw coords for a.txt from the Test.kml using
sed -n 's/.*<coordinates>\(.*\)\,.*/\1/ip;T' Test.kml

But the sed command does work fine on the a.txt at home hopefully its true for work too!

The awk is supposed to run against this:


(i.e. Test.kml)

Not against this:

(i.e. a.txt)

My understanding is that you would run "awk .. | while read" against the kml file.
