Array inside sed

Hi guys

Let me at first describe the whole thing that I'm trying to do. Lets say I have 100 files like the following one.
HTML Code:
Ow            1230   16.000000   -0.834000   16.083957

Hw            1232    1.000000    0.417000   16.844104

Ow            1239   16.000000   -0.834000   10.477756                  
     11.91804137        -21.91087964        -11.56566494
I want to merge all the 100 files. The second field of the 1st,3rd..so on lines shows the atom number i.e 1230,1231. All the files are numbered from 1230..1239. So for the 1st file this numbers are ok, for the second file numbering should start from 1240,1241..and this should go on all the way through the last file. I did merge the files through a loop, The way I was trying to get those atom numbers in an array, replace those array elements with a counter. My thinking was this-

Code:
 myarr=($(awk 'NR % 2 ==1' TestMe | awk '{print $2}'))
echo ${myarr[@]} 
counter=1230; 
for i in "${myarr[@]}" 
do sed "s/$i/$j/g" TestMe;
counter=$(($counter+1)); 
done

I just don't know how to replace array elements in a sed command. Or is it the right way to loop through array elements. And whenever I tried to use that piece of code it said-
Code:
-bash: syntax error near unexpected token `counter=$(($counter+1))'

Thanks a lot!

Hello Saleheen,

Following code may help you in same, but not tested though.
Kindly try the same and let me know if this helps.
Code:
awk 'FILENAME=="file1" {if(NR%2!=0){print $1 OFS $2;A=$2}} FILENAME!="file1"{if(NR%2!=0){print $1 OFS ++A}}' file*

Assuming you are all 100 files have name from file1, file2, file3... file100.

Thanks,
R. Singh

One thing is the output is wrongly numbered but also it's disordered. In my file I had always
PHP Code:
Ow
Hw
Hw
Ow
Hw
Hw
... 
but in the output I have 2 consecutive Ow's. I have to admit I don't understand your code. Could you kindly explain it to me?
Thanks a lot! Really appreciate it!

Keeping your line format for the modified lines is not easy. I use <TAB> as the output field separator. And, no precaution is taken to get the input files in the correct order. Try
Code:
awk 'NR==1 {A=$2} NR%2 {$2=A++} 1' OFS="\t" file[1-5]

Thanks a lot man! Fantastic! It worked! Could you kindly explain the code? I'm ignorant Smilie And also I just wanted how I can change array elements using sed within a loop. May be like this-
Code:
 
myarr=($(awk 'NR % 2 ==1' TestMe | awk '{print $2}'))
echo ${myarr[@]} 
counter=1230; 
len=${#myarr[*]}
for i in {1..len} 
do sed "s/${myarr[@]} /$counter/g" TestMe;
counter=$(($counter+1)); 
done

Thanks a lot! Really appreciate it!

Code:
awk 'NR==1 {A=$2}          # initialize the A variable from $2 on the first line
     NR%2  {$2=A++}        # on every other line, replace $2 by the post-incremented A value
     1                     # = TRUE, do default action (print)
    ' OFS="\t" file[1-5]   # set the output field separator, let the shell expand the files 1 ... 5

Without a detaild analysis of your shell script: be careful to use it as is, as sed will replace every occurrence of myarr[x] in TestMe, very probably leading to undesired results. And, don't use myarr[@] in that loop.
