Book Description

AWK is one of the most primitive and powerful utilities which exists in all Unix and Unix-like distributions. It is used as a command-line utility when performing a basic text-processing operation, and as programming language when dealing with complex text-processing and mining tasks.

Written by the author of GNU AWK (Gawk), this book introduces the awk programming language, going into depth to explain the many features of the language and its syntax, and detailing the various GNU extensions.

The book starts off with an introduction to AWK essentials. You will then be introduced to regular expressions, AWK variables and constants, arrays and AWK functions and more. The book then delves deeper into more complex tasks, such as printing formatted output in AWK, control flow statements, GNU's implementation of AWK covering the advanced features of GNU AWK, such as network communication, debugging, and inter-process communication in the GAWK programming language which is not easily possible with AWK.

  • Master the fastest and most elegant big data munging language
  • Implement text processing and pattern matching using the advanced features of AWK and GAWK
  • Implement debugging and inter-process communication using GAWK
