using array inside awk

Hi All,

I have the following code sequence for reading some bulk file and moving the content to two different arrays.

while read data
THREEG_PATTERN=`echo $data | egrep "3G"`
if [ "$data" == "$THREEG_PATTERN" ]
NEW_THREEG_PATTERN=`echo $THREEG_PATTERN | cut -d " " -f2`

done < $_pat

This code is working perfectly but this is taking long time because of big file size.... How can i improve the performance of this process by using awk or other mechanism? Or how can i convert this entire code to awk? Looking forward ur reply

Thanks in advance

If you post an example of your input and the desired output (or whatever you want to do with it), it would be easier.
# 3  
Yes, the old
while read rec; do 
    # process stuff
done < file

construct is notoriously slow and thus should only be used
on small to moderately big files.
I would go for Perl.
Without having looked too carefully at your processing,
and without even having tried for correct syntax
some Perl statement like this might do?
$ perl -ane 'push @ary,$F[1] if /3G/;END{$"="\n";print"@ary"}' file_to_read_from

Hi ,
Thanks for the reply

My input file will be like this

3G ^Alcatel-OT-S920\/
3G ^Amoi.*A500
3G SPV.*C200
3G ^Levis_Original_3G
3G ASUS-P735
3G ^SIE-E71F\/
3G ^SIE-E71\/
3G SPV.*M650
3G ^HTC-P4550
3G ^HTC-P4550-orange\/
3G ^HTC-P5500-orange\/
3G SPV.*C100
3G SPV.*C600
3G SPV.*C700
3G SPV.*E65

And i need to stroe these things in to 2 differnt arrays ...
# 5  
and once you have built the arrays? What's the next task?
# 6  
After that some other functions will read the values from these two arrays and compare the values which they have ....

Thanks and Regards,

It's quite easy to build those arrays with Awk and Perl, but you should continue to use those languages for the next task:

mint% awk 'END {
  while (++n <= i)
    printf "tg_a, element %d: %s\n", n, tg_a[n]
  while (++m <= j)
    printf "sp_a, element %d: %s\n", m, sp_a[m]
  if (/^3G/)
    tg_a[++i] = $2
    sp_a[++j] = $0
  }' file
tg_a, element 1: ^Alcatel-OT-S920\/
tg_a, element 2: ^Amoi.*A500
tg_a, element 3: SPV.*C200
tg_a, element 4: ^Levis_Original_3G
tg_a, element 5: ASUS-P735
tg_a, element 6: ^SIE-E71F\/
tg_a, element 7: ^SIE-E71\/
tg_a, element 8: ^SIE-ELF1
tg_a, element 9: SPV.*M650
tg_a, element 10: ^HTC-P4550
tg_a, element 11: ^HTC-P4550-orange\/
tg_a, element 12: ^HTC-P5500-orange\/
tg_a, element 13: SPV.*C100
tg_a, element 14: SPV.*C600
tg_a, element 15: SPV.*C700
tg_a, element 16: SPV.*E65
sp_a, element 1: ^Sagem-my401C
sp_a, element 2: ^SAGEM-my411C-orange
sp_a, element 3: ^SAGEM-my511X-orange
sp_a, element 4: ^SEC-SGHC520
sp_a, element 5: ^SEC-SGHD520\/
sp_a, element 6: ^SEC-SGHE570\/
sp_a, element 7: ^SEC-SGHF210
sp_a, element 8: ^SEC-SGHF300\/
sp_a, element 9: ^SAMSUNG-SGH-F490
sp_a, element 10: ^SEC-SGHP310
sp_a, element 11: ^SEC-SGHP520
sp_a, element 12: ^SAMSUNG-SGH-D500\/
sp_a, element 13: ^SAMSUNG-SGH-D600\/
sp_a, element 14: ^SAMSUNG-SGH-D900
