mawk – pattern scanning and text processing language

Synopsis

mawk is an interpreter for the AWK Programming Language.

History

Mawk was written by Mike Brennan. There was no maintainer for some time. I adopted it in 2009, starting with fixes from the Debian package, and resolving issues which the package maintainer did not respond to.

See the changelog for details:

Here is a summary of the amount of changes made since the original mawk 1.3.3 (plus Debian patches).
I have excluded the generated configure script as well as the utilities config.guess and config.sub


Documentation


Download

Besides the gamut of *nix systems (including the Cygwin layer in Windows), I have built this with Visual Studio also. Here are binaries:

Like most of my projects, the source archives for mawk use RCS. For people interested in reading the development history of mawk, I have made exports from RCS to git here:

Likewise, there is an issue-tracking system at code.google::

Packages

As noted, mawk has been neglected by some packagers (see for example this). For that reason, the list is presented in two parts.
There are, by the way, various rpm and dpkg packages in my ftp area which you may find useful.
