In this lesson, we'll use the power of awk to select the columns and rows of data that match our condition. We'll pass a , (comma) to the -F flag (the F stands for field separator), to tell awk to split on commas. From there, the world is our oyster and we can tell awk to only return rows that match whatever parameters we pass.
