My machine is above.Anyone know what happend?

The script with shebang #! /usr/bin/env awk -f don't work?I call it by ./script.awk inputfile,it should be same as manually call awk -f ./script.awk inputfile,but only the latter work well!

which awk output /usr/bin/awk.


The shebang line typically only takes at most two arguments, so it's considering "awk -f" as a single argument to env.

Considering you know the path to your awk, using that directly should fix the problem for you:

#! /usr/bin/awk -f
