Hello,
I have a problem with passing arguments for awk.
I set a variable C as charecter (or string). Then put that variable as
argument for awk.
Unfortuanatly, I go not get the needed result.
For example, in this example, I get the content of the file but I expect it
write "g" as many lines as file file coran.pls contains
any input will help

[adel@localhost ~]$ C=g
[adel@localhost ~]$ awk -v c=$C '{ print $c }' coran.pls
[playlist]
