Jawk version 1.02 - Jawk Extension Facility

Jawk is an AWK programming (report) language interpreter/compiler
written in Java. Unlike prior versions, Jawk provides near-100%
AWK scripting capabilities in both interpreter and compiler modes.

This release introduces the Jawk Extension Facility, an
enhancement to Jawk which allows for arbitrary Java code
to be called as AWK functions in a Jawk script. These extensions
can come from the user (developer) or 3rd party providers
(i.e., the Jawk project team). And, Jawk extensions are opt-in.
In other words, the -ext flag is required to use Jawk extensions
and extensions must be explicitly registered to the Jawk instance
via the -Djawk.extensions property (except for core extensions
bundled with Jawk). As of this writing, Jawk comes bundled with
CoreExtension, SocketExtension, and StdinExtension modules.
You may visit the Javadocs for more information on each of
these extension modules.... read more

Jawk version 1.01 - AWK Script Compiler for JVM

Jawk is an AWK programming (report) language interpreter/compiler
written in Java. Unlike prior versions, Jawk provides near-100%
AWK scripting capabilities with few enhancements to the language.

This release introduces the AWK compiler for the JVM. The compiler
outputs Java bytecode that can execute on any modern JVM.
It requires the Apache/Jakarta Byte Code Engineering Library
(http://jakarta.apache.org/bcel/) to compile, and inclusion
of the jrt.jar file in the CLASSPATH to run the compiled result.
The compiled result can be linked and executed from within another
Java application.... read more

Jawk - Rewritten! (version 1.00)

Jawk is an AWK programming (report) language parser/interpreter written in Java. Unlike prior versions, Jawk provides 100% AWK scripting capabilities with minimal enhancements to the language.

Jawk is different from earlier releases in that the language is _no longer_ extended to allow Java services to be executed within the AWK scripts themselves. We believe that more modern scripting environments (JRuby, pnuts, etc) already provide
this, and that if integration of Java functionality is vital, then one can easily modify Jawk itself to provide this functionality. It also simplifies the scope greatly such that a small, concise, and efficient AWK scripting environment can be provided.... read more
