Awk: What wrong with CJK characters? #Korean


<strong>Given a .txt files</strong> with space-separated words such as:

But where is Esope the holly Bastard But where is 생 지 옥 이 군 지 옥 이 지 옥 지 我 是 你 的 爸 爸 ! 爸 爸 ! ! ! 你 不 會 的 !

And <strong>the Awk function</strong> :

cat /pathway/to/your/file.txt | tr ' ' '\n' | sort | uniq -c | awk '{print $2" "$1}'

I get the <strong>following output</strong> in my console which is <strong>invalid for korean words</strong> (valid for english and Chinese space-separated words)

생 16 Bastard 1 But 2 Esope 1 holly 1 is 2 the 1 where 2 不 1 你 2 我 1 是 1 會 1 爸 4 的 2

<strong>How to get it works for korean words ?</strong> Note: I actually have 300.000 lines and near 2 millions words.

<hr />

EDIT: Used answer:

$ awk '{a[$1]++}END{for(k in a)print a[k],k}' RS=" |\n" myfile.txt | sort > myfileout.txt


A single awk script can handle this easily and will be far more efficient than your current pipeline:

$ awk '{a[$1]++}END{for(k in a)print k,a[k]}' RS=" |\n" file 옥 3 Bastard 1 ! 5 爸 4 군 1 지 4 But 2 會 1 你 2 the 1 是 1 不 1 이 2 Esope 1 的 2 holly 1 where 2 생 1 我 1 is 2

If you want to store the results into another file you can use redirection like:

$ awk '{a[$1]++}END{for(k in a)print k,a[k]}' RS=" |\n" file > outfile
