    Output Columns form a file

    Hi,

    I was wondering if someone could help me. Long ago i had a useful perl file that would let you output columns from a file into another text file that contained what you needed.

    Basically i want to just output column number two from the example below so i can input it into spss/minitab etc.

    0 0.423334
    1 0.424167
    2 0.424167
    3 0.424584
    4 0.425000
    5 0.427500
    6 0.427500
    7 0.427084
    8 0.428750
    9 0.429167

    Is there an easier way around this, no doubt unaware to me. any help is greatly appreciated

    Regards Wolfe

    Code:
    awk '{print $2}' infile > outfile
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
