Hi,

In a file I am trying to find a pattern in this way.
The start/end patterns are repetitive in the file.
So, I want to process this pattern occurrence one by one.

eg.
File.txt




When I execute `awk '/start pattern/,/end pattern/' file.txt` I get


Now, how can I process each occurrence one by one?

Thanks and Regards,
~Sujoy
