Awk by example
In this series of articles, I’m going to turn you into a proficient awk coder. I’ll admit, awk doesn’t have a very pretty or particularly “hip” name, and the GNU version of awk, called gawk, sounds downright weird.
In the evening I read Awk by
example the first in a
series by Daniel Robbins to refresh my
awk knowledge. While I am
mostly a Perl programmer, and use now and then Perl one-liners to solve small
problems, I like to have tools like
awk in my toolkit as well.
