in thread Favorite programming language, other than Perl:
These days I still find myself using awk for one-liners
A few months ago I was going to post a golf competition based on the one-liners at the beginning of The Awk Programming Language. A sort of awk versus Perl.
However, when I tried it myself I couldn't out-golf any of the awk solutions.
I am very fond of awk. It stirs emotions in me like memories of an old sweetheart.
