Can't work logically because you would get first line from first and than you would print out with first_1_line all second lines and not just second_1_line

But thanks.

AWK worked. Just not clear why the filenames can't be overgiven as arguments.

why do you include it in BEGIN{...} section?
Initialize it outside awk!


nawk '
       print "\n======== " a[k] " ========"   
}' $fileA $fileB
