Comment (by robin):

 I just noticed that setting awk's FS only works inside BEGIN, not
 later. What I was hoping to use is something like this:

     echo -e "#separator ;\n1;2;3;4\n" | awk '/#separator/ {FS=$2} {print

 But that doesn't work unfortinately.

 Yeah, but the question is how to do it if "\x09" is part of the input
 (and i.e., not decoded as parsw time).
