We were introduced in 1990 by circumstances—and our favorite programming language, AWK.The circumstances started a couple of years earlier.
I was working at a new job and noticed an unplugged Unix computer sitting in the corner. However, a couple of days later, it was running, and I was and the one-and-only user. Weinberger’s ’s simple programming paradigm—find a pattern in the input and then perform an action—often reduced complex or tedious data manipulations to a few lines of code.That day, I began the transition from statistician to Unix programmer. I was excited to try my hand at programming in AWK. A few days after my posting, I got a friendly email from Arnold introducing himself.On one of many trips to the library or bookstore in search of books on Unix, I found the gray AWK book, a.k.a. He suggested we share design and algorithms and attached a draft of the POSIX standard so that I could update .Frankly, if our roles had been reversed, I would not have been so open and we probably would have never met. He is an AWK expert’s AWK expert and a genuinely nice person.Arnold contributes significant amounts of his expertise and time to the Free Software Foundation.This book is the reference manual, but at its core it is a book about AWK programming that will appeal to a wide audience.
