in thread replace/substituion 4th field

I'm new to this but I'd be doing something like

open file1 for input open file2 for output using >> so it appends .marker1. read a single line as variables $1, $2, ... use switch/case to select the field(s) you want to fix or alter change it(them) for that line of input (with case selecting fields you + want to alter in order) print to (output) file2 the variables $1,$2... check if endof input file if not goto the next line of the input file loop to .marker1. if eof input file add a print "\n"; to the output file (you usually need it) and close both input file and output file

simple I think, but i'm a newbie
