RunAWK is a small wrapper for AWK interpreter that helps write standalone programs in AWK. It provides support for modules and other powerful features. It comes with dozens of modules which provide efficient means for handling command line options, powerful functions for manipulating strings and arrays as well as sorting, mathematical, tmpfile, braceexpand functions and a lot of others.
- Modules framework for AWK
- Dozens of modules ready for use
I've been using runawk from its early days till now. I find it very useful for my daily work. There's no need to tell here again how powerful and simple standard awk is. Runawk wrapper gives it another boost by implementing a nice support for modules and a fairly large collection of ready-to-use modules and functions. If you are doing any development in awk which is more complex than just a single line of code, I strongly recommend you to try out runawk.
