Re: awk or sed

I have a makefile and I want to print each word of the variable, .VARIABLES
on a separate line.
This is the content of .VARIABLES:

.VARIABLES=<D ?F CCACHE_DIR DESKTOP_SESSION CWEAVE ?D GTK_RC_FILES @D
XAUTHORITY GDMSESSION XMODIFIERS CURDIR SHELL RM GDM_LANG _ PREPROCESS.F
var2 LINK.o OUTPUT_OPTION COMPILE.cpp MAKEFILE_LIST @F HISTCONTROL USERNAME
...........................
It was long and I did not copy the rest of the lines.
It seems that the previous simple solution of Mr. Johnson here does not
work, means: printf "%s\n" $var
