Generating CSV from Column data

Hi List,

I have a chunk of data like so:
Code:
User Account Control:
User Account Control:
User Account Control:
User Account Control:
        Disabled
User Account Control:
User Account Control:
User Account Control:
        Disabled
User Account Control:
User Account Control:
        Disabled

What I want to do is collapse the Disabled row to the end of the row above into a CSV like so:
Code:
User Account Control:
User Account Control:
User Account Control:
User Account Control:,Disabled
User Account Control:
User Account Control:
User Account Control:,Disabled
User Account Control:
User Account Control:,Disabled

Any ideas?

thanks ./

As long as there is only one word on indented lines (as in your example), the following should work:
Code:
awk '
/^[[:space:]]/ {
        o = o "," $1
        next
}
{       if(o != "") print o
        o = $0
}
END {   if(o != "") print o
}' file

If you want to try this on a Solaris/SunOS system, change awk to /usr/xpg4/bin/awk, /usr/xpg6/bin/awk, or nawk.
