# 8  
I tried the script with /usr/xpg4/bin/awk , But it is throwing error at a diff place.

Code:
Error :
/usr/xpg4/bin/awk: line 2 (): syntax error "unk" in //

Below is the first 10 lines from the code and its throwing error at line 2, Do you know what is wrong here?
The same code worked fine for just awk

Code:
BEGIN {
 FS="|$@#!|$@#!";
 line_num=0;
 msg_start=0;
 msg_end=0;

 }
