Awk if else statement

In this article let’s discuss about Awk if else statement. Let’s go through the following methods without any delay.

Method 1:

# Basic syntax:
awk 'BEGIN {if(condition) outcome}' # if
awk 'BEGIN {if(condition_1) outcome_1; else outcome_2}' # if else
awk 'BEGIN {if(condition_1) outcome_1; else if(condition_2) outcome_2}' # if else if

# Example usage:
awk 'BEGIN {if(2>3) print "1_is_true"; else print 6}'
--> 6

# For multi-line and ternary operator syntax, see source

Hope the above solution works.
