I have a small file processing problem. I have a file consisting of rows
DESMIAAW RT 6650 ASHWORTH RD WDMNIAAQ 410701 410702 410704 410801
DESMIAAW DSLAM 7410 ASPEN DR WDMNIAIA ADSL 410801
The first row has a variable number of 6 digit numbers at the end, the
row after doesn't have that. I need to end up with the row "normalized"
so if it gets in a row with 6 numbers at the end, I want six rows out
with each number in the sequence at the end. There can be up to 9 of the
numbers at the end.
I can do something similar in perl or awk but never bothered to learn
how to do the variable number of repeating numbers bit.
