I don't think it's clear what you want. Can you restate your goal and give another example?

I'm sorry, I still don't understand what you need. What have you tried so far?

RE: Request for help on awk .

Your files doesn't contain data structured in columns. First file contains only the names of files and other files seems to contain lines with some unstructured text data. So, I don't see any advantage why it should be done in awk. I would do it in other scripting language. However, if you want to do it in awk, you can, but first make a little effort, try to write something self, post here your code, say us where are you stucked and then ask your questions. Please be clear that this is not a free coding service.
