How do I alias the FILE name into awk?

gawk -f awk_script FILE


FILE | gawk awk_script

for FILE in `find ./* -prune -type f -newer ./TIMEFILE`
# Need to have the actual FILE name ran thru an awk script
# 2  
I think u want to use argument file name inside awk, for this you can use FILENAME variable in side awk to get the argument file name
