awk processing

Hi all
Is there a way in awk to know that you are processing your final line of input if you do no know how many lines were in the input to begin with?

# 2  
You can do something like:

awk -v nlines=$(wc -l < file) 'NR==nlines{We are on the last line...}' file

# 3  
awk 'NR==FNR { next }' file
# 4  
thanks ppl

This shouldn't work, did you try it?

# 6  
use the end block of the awk

awk '{}END{}'
