NAME

igawk - gawk with include files

SYNOPSIS

igawk [ all gawk options ] -f program-file [ -- ] file ...
igawk [ all gawk options ] [ -- ] program-text file ...

DESCRIPTION

Igawk is a simple shell script that adds the ability to have ‘‘include files’’ to gawk(1).

AWK programs for igawk are the same as for gawk, except that, in addition, you may have lines like

@include getopt.awk

in your program to include the file getopt.awk from either the current directory or one of the other directories in the search path.

OPTIONS

See gawk(1) for a full description of the AWK language and the options that gawk supports.

EXAMPLES

cat << EOF > test.awk
@include getopt.awk

BEGIN {         while (getopt(ARGC, ARGV, "am:q") != -1)                 ... } EOF

igawk -f test.awk
