@krishmaths - your answer suits my requirement perfectly
@skrynesaver- perl also works but it shows output in separate line.
@Don cragon - It works only when number of columns is known

thanks Akshay.. works perfectly
I assume by @Don cragon you mean me. I don't understand your comment. In the tests I ran, it works on any input line where there are one or more matched pairs of opening and closing parentheses. For example, with the input:
mike(hussey) AND mike(donald) AND mike(ryan) AND mike(johnson)
(1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) (9) (10)(11)
nothing to print from this line
lots of junk (real data) more junk

it prints:
hussey donald ryan johnson
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11
real data

which seems to match what you requested. You didn't say what should happen when there are no parentheses.
