       gbconvtable - Replace keys with values


       gbconvtable [options]


       Replace  keys  with  values  at  a  given  position  of  the  input file.  The name of the
       dictionary file is provided on the command line with the option 'dictfile'. It is a simple
       text  file  organized  in  two  columns. The first column contains the keys and the second
       column the respective values. Obviously the values can be equal, but the  keys  should  be
       all  different.  Data  are  read  from standard input and all fields at position 'pos' are
       considered keys of the provided dictionary and replaced with the associated keys. If 'pos'
       is  not  specified it is assumed equal to 1. If 'pos' is larger than the number of fields,
       no replacement takes place. If the option 'force' is not  set,  only  those  fields  which
       appears as keys in the dictionary file are replaced.


       -d name of the dictionary file

       -c position of the column of keys to be replaced

       -f forced look-up: substitute provided string for non defined keys


              gbconvtable -d dict_file -c 3 -f 'none' < input_file

       This program requires awk or gawk.
