The Awk programming language
Awk is a pattern scanning and processing language.
It is well-suited for small projects involving text processing or
formatting, and has some useful features for small database
applications. Its features for pattern description are derived
from those of the
grep family of standard Unix tools.
The original description of Awk is given in:
Aho, Alfred V., Brian W. Kernighan, and Peter J. Weinberger. The AWK Programming Language. Addison-Wesley, 1988, ISBN 0-201-07981-X.
