If it can be classed as a language, Awk!

I've never been able to get my head around it, which is why Perl came in so handy :-)

Cheers,

    Not only is awk a language, but it is Turing-complete. It's hard to imagine that there would ever have been a Perl without awk and I still use it frequently (although almost exclusively for very short scripts these days).

      Seems, you're not the only one who find awk2ward: a2p ;-)
