Ah I see, that's down to the format I suppose. I think if I was doing
it this way (with awk) and passing in the name anyway, I would
probably not bother printing the name found. In fact you could have
two scripts, one that prints a list of names only and another that
prints all the titles for one name...

Anything more complex I would attack with bash or Perl but mainly
because I am familiar with Perl. I could try and knock up a one-liner
if it helps?
