gawkIn The Cygwin Environment
gawk can be used "out of the box" under Windows if you are
using the Cygwin environment.(64)
This environment provides an excellent simulation of Unix, using the
GNU tools, such as
bash, the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC),
GNU Make, and other GNU tools. Compilation and installation for Cygwin
is the same as for a Unix system:
tar -xvpzf gawk-3.1.1.tar.gz cd gawk-3.1.1 ./configure make
When compared to GNU/Linux on the same system, the `configure' step on Cygwin takes considerably longer. However, it does finish, and then the `make' proceeds as usual.
Note: The `|&' operator and TCP/IP networking
(see section Using
gawk for Network Programming)
are fully supported in the Cygwin environment. This is not true
for any other environment for MS-DOS or MS-Windows.
