http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hi All, I have a huge file, in which I have used below command to get the maximum record length in the file. $ awk ' { if ( length > L ) { L=length} }END{ print L}' abc.csv Output: 27151 Now, I would like to find out the record number to which this max length belongs. For Example: Record# 850 has maximum length "27151" Request you all to please have a look at this query. Thanks, Vaibhav (HowTos)
