To help we'd have to know what you did.. Then it is a good idea to give information about your OS ( OS and version ) and what shell you use

if suppose what you posted on #1 is your input file following will work

Code:
$ awk '{ORS=NR%9==0?RS:FS}1' file
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 20 Jan 01 14:32 abc.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 40 Jan 01 14:32 abcd.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 60 Jan 01 14:32 abcde.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 80 Jan 01 14:32 abcdef.txt

How did you generate the strange output in the first place? Was it ls -l | tr -s " " | tr " " "\n" or something?

You could:-
Code:
ls -l | tr -s " " | tr " " "\n" | while read perms
do
   read links
   read owner
   read group
   read size
   read d1
   read d2
   read d3
   read file

   echo "$perms $links $owner $group $size $d1 $d2 $d3 $file"
done

Or you could just ls -l and be done with it.



Am I missing something here?
