Release Notes: A -F option was added. New ord.awwas ftrans_in.awk, and glob.awk modules were included. A new alt_getopt executable was included for parsing short and long options in shell scripts. New min3, min4, min5, min_key, min_value, and key_of_min_value (min.awk), and max3, max4, max5, max_key, max_value, and key_of_max_value (max.awk) functions were provided. New samples were added: examples/demo_minmax, examples/demo_tokenre3, examples/demo_ftrans, examples/demo_glob*. A new feature was added in multisub.awk. Minor improvements were made in the installation procedure.
Release Notes: The options -i, -I, and all long options were completely removed. The option -T was added for tabbed input. The option -v is documented in the man page. Fixes for gcc compilation warnings. Fixes for compilation with non-empty MAKEOBJDIR. Typo fixes in NEW, runcmd.awk, and man pages.
Release Notes: A bug in removing subdirectories in a temporary directory was fixed. Improvements for runawk_modules.3.
Release Notes: paexec(1) doesn't use system(3) anymore for removing the temporary directory. The function print_help() was moved from the power_getopt.awk module to init_getopt.awk.
Release Notes: This release adds runawk_modules.3 where all modules are documented, deprecates long options, removes the -i and -I options, and includes man pages in the distribution tarball so pod2man is not needed for building.
Release Notes: The path to the awk interpreter is detected at build time (not hardcoded /usr/bin/awk). This fixes runawk on, for example, Haiku. Minor fixes in the documentation. Clean-ups and improvements in the build system.
