What a perfect name. I’m assuming the gag was intended :)
“Aho” (or ahō) in slang Japanese means “idiot”, which is was “git” means in slang English.
I sure hope Alfred Aho (the “A” in AWK) doesn’t know this…
New site idea: enter a name, and it searches world dictionaries for derogatory meanings in various languages.
I’m pretty sure he does.
petition to reserve such a perfect name for a version written in true awk. this one should be called gaho.
Funny coincidence! Also see Alfred Aho of the Aho-Corasick algorithm.
Aho is also the A in AWK.
I figured, based on sibling comment.
It still needs sha1sum. I was hoping to find it implemented in true awk.
