AWK script - extracting min and max values from selected lines

Hi guys!
I'm new to scripting and I need to write a script in awk.

Here is example of file on which I'm working

HTML Code:

I would like to obtain min and max values of column 9 from lines having TB in 4th column. I was able to extract min and max values from whole file but couldn't restrict it to the lines with TB in 4th column. Any advice?

TY in advance!

Hi grincz,

One way using awk:
Code:
$ cat infile

Birei, thank You very much!
I just noticed that some of the results must be from 8th column - some lines lack 5th column from early lines. Maybe it is possible to count columns backwards? Or make a condition saying that if in the 5th column there is a letter script should take value from 9th column, else from 8th?

Try with this. What modified? In case fifth field is an alphabetic character, asign the ninth column to value variable, else assign the eigth one. And work with that.
Code:
$ awk 'BEGIN { max = -1; min = -1 }
  $4 == "TB" {
    value = $5 ~ /^[[:alpha:]]$/ ? $9 : $8;  
    max = max < value ? value : max;
    min = (min == -1 || min > value) ? value : min
  }
  END { printf "max = %.3f\nmin = %.3f\n", max, min }
' infile
max = 87.730
min = 66.630

Unfortunately it doesn't work. I have much larger file - around 100k lines and it gives me such results...
Code:
max = 99,000
min = 100,000

Any ideas? I checked and there are no more variants of the TB lines...

Old 02-03-2012
Try this...
Code:
awk '/TB/{f=$(NF-2);!min?min=f:0;max=f>max?f:max;min=f>min?min:f}END{print max":"min}' infile

Hi ahamed,
results are more possible bus still not there..
Code:
max = 99,000
min = -1,000

I know that max should be over 160 and min around 40-50.
@Birei script is working on a smaller files but with the bigger files it doesn't work.

Maybe the problem is that some lines have 4digit values in the 5th column - like this?
