The "inplace" include file contains an ENDFILE rule that terminates the inplace processing. Consider an alternative approach: bash-4.2$ awk 'ENDFILE {print "bar"}; @include "inplace"' file bash-4.2$ cat file bar bash-4.2$ This includes the "inplace" ENDFILE rule after yours, so that the print occurs before the "inplace" processing is terminated. In other words, the ordering of the ENDFILE rules matters.
Could you move the code that terminates the inplace processing from the ENDFILE to a BEGINFILE rule?
