Exit an awk script without processing

Specs: AIX 5.3, 4 CPU / 32 GB RAM

I have an awk script which I'd like to exit if it finds a keyword, if not continue processing.



if(/MAYDAY/) { print "Exiting!"; exit }
else {
continue processing

The problem is even when I find "MAYDAY" I still get some line being printed. Could anyone assist?

Just grep for the keyword before starting your awk script. If you don't find your "MAYDAY," run your awk script.
