How do I use awk inside my Automator workflow?

The Mac OS X Automator tool lets me run a perl script as well shell scripts, but I'd like to use awk instead. How can I fit this into my workflow? Perl appears in the popup menu of possible shells for the script, but awk does not. [more inside]

parse pix/asa logs

Trying to create a Perl or shell script to parse/convert Cisco PIX/ASA logs into a CSV format. Has anyone had any success with this? Since all messages aren't standard, I'm trying to think of the best way to approach this issue. Has anyone had any success, or have a good AWK, Grep, SED, or perl script that can get this done?

Using Grep within BBedit to change some data in tables.

I'm using Grep within BBedit 6.1.2 lite, in order to change some data in tables from "regular" time in the format: "0530PM" to military time: "1730"

Essentially, I am able to locate the data I want using:

(####)PM

Which, in the above example returns: "0530"

So here's the question: I want to treat that result as a number, and add 1200 to it to convert it to military time.

Is there a way to do this within BBedit using the replacement patterns, or do I have to go figure out how to write a perl/python/awk/applescript to accomplish this?
