Haven't you asked this already? Oh well, here's my version:
1. awk '{print $3}' filename
1. perl -alpe'$_=$F[2]' filename

2. awk -Fc '{print $3}' filename
2. perl -Fc -alpe'$_=$F[0]' filename

If you know how to do it, what are you asking? Obviously TIMTOWTDI (duh!),
so how do you define "equivalent" in this context? The "best" way? The most
"awk like" way? What?
