Transpose File

Have various files like this:

Code:
InSlot=0x00000001
InPort=0x00000000
Inref=0x0000002f
InSID=0x00000001
OutSlot=0x00000001
OutPort=0x00000002
Outref=0x00000000
OutSID=0x0000000b
OutUName_2=14[asass]
InSlot=0x00000001
InPort=0x00000000
Inref=0x000001a8
InSID=0x00000001
OutSlot=0x00000001
OutPort=0x00000000
Outref=0x00000023
OutSID=0x00000001
OutUName_2=12[asasdas]
InSlot=0x00000001
InPort=0x00000000
Inref=0x000000e9
InSID=0x00000001
OutSlot=0x00000001
OutPort=0x00000000
Outref=0x00000020
OutSID=0x0000000b
OutUName_2=8[asaede]


Trying to transpose the file to nine columns: (from InSlot toOutUName)

Code:
InSlot,InPort,Inref,InSID,OutSlot,OutPort,Outref,OutSID,OutUName



I have tried tr and and paste with no luck. Probably AWK is the solution but I am not familiar enough with it. Thanks!

Code:
awk '{ 
  i = 0; 
  while ( i == 0) {
    printf "%s", $0;
    if (getline <= 0) {
      break;
    };
    i = index($0, "InSlot");
    if (i == 0) {
      printf ",";
    } else {
      printf "\n";
    };
  }
}

END {
  printf "\n";
}' filename

# 3  
with some assumptions:
Code:
awk -F= '{printf("%s%s",$2,(FNR%9)?OFS:ORS)}' OFS=, myFile

or
Code:
awk -F= '{printf("%s%s",$2,($1=="OutUName_2")?ORS:OFS)}' OFS=, myFile

# 4  
Unfortunaterly both of the solutions only outputs the last column:

14[sdad]
,7[dfsfsdfs]
,4[ddsddf]
# 5  
given a sample file myFile:
Code:
InSlot=0x00000001
InPort=0x00000000
Inref=0x0000002f
InSID=0x00000001
OutSlot=0x00000001
OutPort=0x00000002
Outref=0x00000000
OutSID=0x0000000b
OutUName_2=14[asass]
InSlot=0x00000001
InPort=0x00000000
Inref=0x000001a8
InSID=0x00000001
OutSlot=0x00000001
OutPort=0x00000000
Outref=0x00000023
OutSID=0x00000001
OutUName_2=12[asasdas]
InSlot=0x00000001
InPort=0x00000000
Inref=0x000000e9
InSID=0x00000001
OutSlot=0x00000001
OutPort=0x00000000
Outref=0x00000020
OutSID=0x0000000b
OutUName_2=8[asaede]

running
awk -F= '{printf("%s%s",$2,($1=="OutUName_2")?ORS:OFS)}' OFS=, myFile
produces:
Code:
0x00000001,0x00000000,0x0000002f,0x00000001,0x00000001,0x00000002,0x00000000,0x0000000b,14[asass]
0x00000001,0x00000000,0x000001a8,0x00000001,0x00000001,0x00000000,0x00000023,0x00000001,12[asasdas]
0x00000001,0x00000000,0x000000e9,0x00000001,0x00000001,0x00000000,0x00000020,0x0000000b,8[asaede]

There's either your real file is not what you quoted above OR you're not following the suggested solution.
Trying giving a REAL sample input file AGAIN - please do use code tags.
If you created a file under Windows, make sure there're no ^M-s.

Can we see example desired output?
