This 45-year-old Unix tool finally gets an update

AWK, a software platform first introduced in 1977, has finally received its long-awaited update, almost half a century after its inception.

What makes the launch more impressive is the work of 80-year-old Canadian computer scientist Brian Kernighan, who is part of the team responsible for the software acronym itself (AWK – Alfred Aho, Peter Weinberger and Brian Kernighan).
