AWK: END { statements }

Such as what?

END { statements }
The statements are executed once after all input has been read.

What might you do after? AND does this operate on what has been read or is it for use when all that processing has finished?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Bill PrewCommented:
The {END} block can't see the previously read lines, unless you save pieces of data in variables to be referenced later.  

One use would be total lines at the end of a report, or perform some wrap up calculations.  Or perhaps just display some record counters or statistics.
