Associated article: Examining the TAWK Compiler

Tags: Tools    

Published source code accompanying the article by James K. Lawless in which he examines Thompson Automation's "TAWK" compiler family. This is a set of compilers--based on the AWK languages--for UNIX, OS/2, Windows 95/NT, and Solaris. Jim finds TAWK to be a powerful programming tool, particularly when you use it as scripting tool to quickly implement batch-oriented software. Also see TAWK.zip
