I would like to print every field from the 11th field to the $NF field.  Is there a way to do this?

For example, if there were 14 fields total I would want to print 11th, 12th, 13th, and 14th fields in my awk statement.  But I won't know ahead of time there are 14 total fields, so is there a way to do it using the $NF variable?

Can you tell me what ORS and what OFS stand for?  (I assume OFS means Output File Seperator?)

      OFS    output field separator (default blank)

       ORS    output record separator (default newline)
