Yes, I agree, awk is wonderful.  In many ways it's a far better
language, despite its limitations, than most of its purported
replacements (Lua excepted of course :-).


In New York, most people don't have cars, so if you want to kill a person, you
have to take the subway to their house.  And sometimes on the way, the train
is delayed and you get impatient, so you have to kill someone on the subway.
