Hi I need to convert a script from one format to another. I have learned awk for the purpose. So far it has worked fine but now I've run into a thing I don't really know how to solve. I want to append the string between brackets ('{' and '}') in the source file to the target. The string can occupy multiple lines. Two examples: hdrBloomMotion []{0.64f, 0.87f, 0.98f} float sphericalH[] { 0.818459, 0.752063, 0.7539827, -0.049951, -0.066370, -0.066860, -0.199593, -0.110617, -0.030121, -0.042947, -0.039229, -0.034669, -0.102300, -0.058750, -0.015928, 0.036119, 0.028422, 0.020442 } How can I solve this in the best way? By the way is awk a good language/tool of choice when converting scrips to other formats? Thanks

Perl was written to augment the deficiencies of awk/sed scripts. That might be a good alternative. Depending on the complexity of the transformations, you could use tools like Lex/Flex and Yacc/Bison to parse one grammar, and emit another one.
