Perl's "-a" command-line option allows you to pretend that you're using something that resembles "awk" (that's why it's "-a") -- differences between "perl -a" and "awk" are that perl uses @F where awk uses $1,$2,..., and the first token on the line is $F[0] instead of $1:
df -k | perl -lane 'print $F[3]'
(the "-l" option helps make line-feed handling more like awk as well). I presume this still doesn't do exactly what the OP intended, since it prints a line of output for every line of input from "df -k"; but the OP's use of "grep '/^' " seems odd -- not sure what's intended by that.

To limit the output to a particular line, one can cite the target path as an arg to "df", and/or use a condition in the perl script:

df -k / | perl -lane 'print $F[3] if /\d/' # skips column headings # or just: df -k | perl -lane 'print $F[3] if m{/$}' # only prints value for "/ +"

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
