Hi, Sorry for being unclear. I am only referring to the programs you write. For example, using cut multiple times, as you may have had to do in the last assignment because we'd not covered awk, is very inefficient (which is why efficiency was not mentioned). Another example: you can use multiple greps, which each search for one thing at a time, or you can use a single Awk (or perhaps Sed) script, which trawls the data once. That said, given that we've not really touched on this I'm really only focused on big picture stuff. Cheers MichaelW
