awk to match file1 and extract specific tag values

File2 is tab-delimeted and I am trying to use $2 in file1 (space delimeted) as a search term in file2. If it is found then the AF= in and the FDP= values from file2 are extracted and printed next to the file1 line. I commented the awk before I added the lines in bold the current output resulted. I also can not figure out how to change the FDP= to READS=. Thank you Smilie.


BEGIN { OFS="\t" }
    # Read $2 search terms from file1 into 's'
      FNR==NR {
    { match($8,/'"'"'normalizedPos'"'"':'"'"'/, pos)  # extract and read into pos value after :
     { match($8,/(AF=[^;]+).*(FDP=[^;]+)/, info) # extract and read into info value after AF= and FDP=
      print $1":"pos[1],gene[1],info[2],info[1] ($1 in s ? s[$1] : "NOT DETECTED")  # print desired output
awk -f script.awk file FS='\t' file2

Your first error is that '"'"' is the sequence to have a literal ' within a 'string' in the shell.
You need it when you have an embedded awk code in a shell script or shell command.
Within a pure awk script it is simply a '

I think you want a lookup table from file1: $1 is the lookup key and $2 the returned value.
# in file 1 store the $2 values in s[$1] (s[] indexed by $1)

Now you can test existence with (key in s) or get the value with s[key] or loop through the keys with for (key in s).

I think the following captures the wanted values in file2:
  match($8,/'normalizedPos':'([^']+)'/, pos)  # extract value after : into pos[]
  match((";" $8),/;(AF=[^;]+).*;(FDP=[^;]+)/, info) # extract values after AF= and FDP= into info[]
  match($8,/'gene':'([^']+)'/,gene) # extract the value after gene into gene[]
  print "pos[1]="pos[1], "info[1]="info[1], "info[2]="info[2], "gene[1]="gene[1]

Note1: the target array as 3rd argument is an extension in GNU-awk. (Maybe you want to consider perl? Then it works on all platforms that have perl.)
Note2: for a most exact string match use a "border character". I have even prepended a ";" to the input string for match() in order to ensure it exists even at the beginning.

If Perl is an option, then here's a sample program:

$ cat -n
     1  #!/usr/bin/perl
     2  use strict;
     4  # Set the file names
     5  my $search_file = "file1";
     6  my $data_file = "file2";
     7  my $temp_file = "file1.tmp";
     9  # $sf = The search file; the file from where the search terms are read.
    10  # $df = The data file; the file to be scanned with the search term to fetch
    11  #       values of AF and FDP
    12  # $tf = The temporary file; where the final results are stored temporarily.
    13  #       After all processing is done, you can either move or copy the temp file
    14  #       to the search file. This is much safer than in-place editing of search
    15  #       file.
    16  open(my $sf, "<", $search_file) or die "Can't open $search_file: $!";
    17  open(my $df, "<", $data_file) or die "Can't open $data_file: $!";
    18  open(my $tf, ">", $temp_file) or die "Can't open $temp_file: $!";
    20  # Loop through the search file
    21  while (<$sf>) {
    22      chomp(my $line1 = $_);
    23      # For each line in the search file, extract the search term, which is
    24      # the second "word" from left.
    25      (my $search_term) = $line1 =~ /^\S+\s+(\S+).*$/;
    27      # Initialize AF and FDP to zero-length strings. If the search term is
    28      # not found in data file, we use this fact to print "NOT DETECTED".
    29      my ($af, $fdp) = ("", "");
    31      # Now loop through the data file looking for the search term.
    32      while (<$df>) {
    33          chomp(my $line2 = $_);
    34          # If the search term was found in a particular line of data file,
    35          # set AF and FDP values and stop processing the data file.
    36          if ($line2 =~ /$search_term/) {
    37              ($af, $fdp) = $line2 =~ /AF=(.*?);.*FDP=(.*?);/;
    38              last;
    39          }
    40      }
    42      # If AF and FDP were set, print their values, else "NOT DETECTED".
    43      if ($af eq "" and $fdp eq "") {
    44          print $tf "$line1 NOT DETECTED\n";
    45      } else {
    46          print $tf "$line1 READS=[$fdp] AF=[$af]\n";
    47      }
    49      # Now rewind; set the pointer back to the beginning of data file.
    50      # For the next search term, we will start searching from the top of the
    51      # data file.
    52      seek($df, 0, 0);
    53  }
    55  close($sf) or die "Can't close $search_file: $!";
    56  close($df) or die "Can't close $data_file: $!";
    57  close($tf) or die "Can't close $temp_file: $!";
    59  # At this point, we have the original file "file1" and a temp file "file1.tmp"
    60  # with the desired output. The following statements retain a backup of the
    61  # original file.
    62  my $sf_orig = "file1.orig";
    63  rename($search_file, $sf_orig) or die "Can't rename $search_file to $sf_orig: $!";

Hi cmccabe ,
In post #1, you said that the desired output from your two sample input files is:
AKT1 c.49G>A p.E17K	chr5:112175324 	NOT DETECTED
AKT1 c.155T>G p.L52R	chr7:55242467	NOT DETECTED
APC c.4033G>T p.E1345*	READS=1999	AF=0.248124
EGFR c.2237_2255delAATTAAGAGAAGCAACATCinsT p.E746_S752delinsV	READS=1963	AF=0.0,0.0,0.0,0.139582

Given that there is no record in file2 that contains the file1 field 2 values as a coding value in the single-quoted sub-subfields of field 8 in file2 why were the values show in red in the above output selected as the desired output? (I note that the output produced by the perl script durden_tyler suggested omits that field from the output and you didn't comment on that discrepancy.)

Other than having no idea how the 3rd output field in the first two records of your desired output is supposed to be selected, I think I can come up with an awk script that does what you want just using standard awk features (without the gawk extensions your current code is trying to use).

@Don Cragun the fields in red are a typo on my part (they are not needed). I apologize and thank you Smilie. A standard awk would be great as I was trying but could not figure it out.
