supressing carrige returns/line feeds

Hi gurus

I am stripping lots of email addresses from a file with this
grep "^To" file.log |awk '{print "1,"$2}' > recipients.out

file.log looks something like this:

I want the recipients.out to not have a carrage return, so suppress and then only take the last letter of the email address.

Thanks in advance

echo $(awk '/^To:/ {print $2}' file.log) > recipients.out

awk '/^To: / { printf "%s ", $2 }' file.log > recipients.out

should be a little faster, and not run into trouble with a big file.log

Thanks for this... but how can I get my "one" and "comma"


infront of the email addresses?

You want a 1, before every name, or only the first one?


echo 1, $(awk '/^To:/ {print $2}' file.log) > recipients.out

echo $(awk '/^To:/ {print 1, $2 " "} ' file.log) > recipients.out

awk '$1=="To:"{print ++c,$NF}' OFS="," file.log
