Somehow I’ve never seen something like this … Very big awk codebase, nice video. Probably because it would run crazy slow on original PCs … AFAIK Awk wasn’t used on PCs until Linux?
Nope. There were a couple of awks, pre-linux. I used one included in the MKS utilities.
Heck, Venix/PRO on my DEC Professional 380 has awk. Quite sure the PC variant did.

Yup…Coherent had awk. Nifty thing Coherent, and it is now open source (BSD license).
Oh man, I miss GODS. The remake a few years ago didn’t help, it just made it worse.
