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
