Quick question on awk usage



Hi everyone, I have a quick question on using awk from the command line;
I have a tab delimited file, and would like to know the syntax to print
the entire line only when $12 == 575; the syntax from the command line
to print only $1 would be cat security.log | awk '{print $1}' ; any
ideas (grepping for 578 won't be good enough since it's possible that
578 could appear somewhere else in the file)  Thanks very much.

Aaron
