Description

Effective awk Programming, 3rd Edition, focuses entirely on awk, exploring it in the greatest depth of the three awk titles we carry. It’s an excellent companion piece to the more broadly focused second edition.

This book provides complete coverage of the _ gawk_ 3.1 language as well as the most up-to-date coverage of the POSIX standard for awk available anywhere. Author Arnold Robbins clearly distinguishes standard _ awk_ features from GNU awk _ (gawk)_- specific features, shines light into many of the “dark corners” of the language (areas to watch out for when programming), and devotes two full chapters to example programs. A brand new chapter is devoted to TCP/IP networking with gawk. He includes a summary of how the awk language evolved.

The book also covers:

  • Internationalization of _ gawk_
  • Interfacing to i18n at the awk level
  • Two-way pipes
  • TCP/IP networking via the two-way pipe interface
  • The new PROCINFO array, which provides information about running _ gawk_
  • Profiling and pretty-printing awk programs

In addition to covering the _ awk_ language, this book serves as the official “User’s Guide” for the GNU implementation of awk (_ gawk_ ), describing in an integrated fashion the extensions available to the System V Release 4 version of awk that are also available in _ gawk_ .

As the official gawk User’s Guide, this book will also be available electronically, and can be freely copied and distributed under the terms of the Free Software Foundation’s Free Documentation License (FDL). A portion of the proceeds from sales of this book will go to the Free Software Foundation to support further development of free and open source software.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book is donated to the Free Software Foundation to further development of GNU software.
