mawk-1.3.4.20161120 – fast POSIX-compliant awk

Description

mawk is an interpreter for the AWK Programming Language. The AWK
language is useful for manipulation of data files, text retrieval and
processing, and for prototyping and experimenting with algorithms. mawk
is a new awk meaning it implements the AWK language as defined in Aho,
Kernighan and Weinberger, The AWK Programming Language, Addison-Wesley
Publishing, 1988 ("the AWK book".)

mawk conforms to the Posix 1003.2 (draft 11.3) definition of the AWK
language which contains a few features not described in the AWK book,
and mawk provides a small number of extensions.
