Hi there,
is just tried to compile my awk script everything worked fine but then I tried to execute the binary I just received a segmentation fault. I'm running Debian on a AMD Turion 64 ML-32

I also tested the Speed of the compiled program

time awk '{ print $0 }' testfile > check

real    0m0.203s
user    0m0.084s
sys     0m0.040s

time ../awka.out testfile  > check

real    0m0.240s
user    0m0.144s
sys     0m0.016s

so the compiled one seems to be slower than the one interpreted with awk is this usual?
