Match raws with Awk to make an output file

Match raws with Awk to make an output file

HI guys! I just discovered this useful forum and i'm wondering if you can help me with my issue..

Below what I want, I have 3 columns, and I would like to distribute raws on first colum with the other 2 colums

http://www.url_from17.com http://www.url_to17.com anchor_text17
http://www.url_from18.com http://www.url_to18.com anchor_text18
http://www.url_from19.com http://www.url_to19.com anchor_text19
http://www.url_from20.com http://www.url_to20.com anchor_text20
http://www.url_from21.com http://www.url_to21.com anchor_text21
http://www.url_from22.com http://www.url_to22.com anchor_text22
http://www.url_from23.com http://www.url_to23.com anchor_text23
http://www.url_from24.com http://www.url_to24.com anchor_text24
http://www.url_from25.com http://www.url_to25.com anchor_text25
http://www.url_from26.com http://www.url_to26.com anchor_text26
http://www.url_from27.com http://www.url_to27.com anchor_text27
http://www.url_from28.com http://www.url_to28.com anchor_text28
http://www.url_from29.com http://www.url_to29.com anchor_text29

The result should be something like that, I want to use 4 URL and their respective anchor text (url_to) for 1 url_from , the outputfile should be like that:

http://www.url_from17.com http://www.url_to17.com anchor_text17
http://www.url_from17.com http://www.url_to18.com anchor_text18
http://www.url_from17.com http://www.url_to19.com anchor_text19
http://www.url_from17.com http://www.url_to20.com anchor_text20
http://www.url_from18.com http://www.url_to21.com anchor_text21
http://www.url_from18.com http://www.url_to22.com anchor_text22
http://www.url_from18.com http://www.url_to23.com anchor_text23
http://www.url_from18.com http://www.url_to24.com anchor_text24

I would like to distribute raws

raws ??? Should that be rows?

stingz75, better specify what is the exact input data. Just a number interval 17..20, or a list of 4 distinct URLs, or something else ?


RE: Match raws with Awk to make an output file

Oh my bad, you're right.. I meant raws.

It could be flat file with columns usings tabs (\t) for example.
It's not intervals it's all about Urls, links and anchortexts

The first column are the pages (or Urls) which will contains my links (links are on the second column) and their respective anchortext

So I want to attach 4 links and 4 anchortext (randomly) for each URL present on the first column.

And the final output file should be like this for my treatment:
http://www.tek-tips.com http://www.mylink1.com Anchortext1
http://www.tek-tips.com http://www.mylink2.com Anchortext2
http://www.tek-tips.com http://www.mylink3.com Anchortext3
http://www.tek-tips.com http://www.mylink4.com Anchortext4
http://www.tek-tips.com/page1 http://www.mylink5.com Anchortext5
http://www.tek-tips.com/page2 http://www.mylink6.com Anchortext6
http://www.tek-tips.com/page3 http://www.mylink7.com Anchortext7
http://www.tek-tips.com/page4 http://www.mylink8.com Anchortext8

I hope it's more clear for you.
