Need script to take input from file, match on it in file 2 and input data


I am trying to figure out a script to run in windows that will allow me to match on First column in file1 to 8th Column in File2 then
Insert file1 column2 to file2 column4 then create a new file.

12345 Sam
12346 Bob
12347 Bill


So once matched and inserted new file would contain:

Can I do this in perl or do I need to do it somewhere else?

This code in UNIX but if you have virtual machine on windows (Linux system) you can use it ....also instead of nawk (if not available) you can use gawk or /usr/xpg4/bin/awk...

nawk -v OFS="|" 'NR==FNR {a[$1]=$2 ; next}
($8 in a ){print $1,$2,$3,a[$8],$5,$6,$7,$8 ; next} {print $0}
' FS=" " file1 FS="|" file2
