This page is an unofficial, subject to change, work in progress,
gawk development. Having this page is an experiment.
It has been over a year and a half since I last updated this, so here goes.
Gawk 4.1.3 is the current release. The manual was published at the beginning of 2015 as the fourth edition of Effective awk Programming.
Volunteer needed: I would love to find someone to build
gawk with Visual Studio (at least VS 2010) under
Windows and maintain a native Win32 version.
Some nice things have happened in the master branch:
gawkcore into the code base. Move the select extension into gawkextlib.This has been done
Here are the concrete tasks, roughly in order of priority, with some note as to who amongst the development team I hope will tackle them:
old-extensiondirectory to get a handle on what it does, and then try to integrate it into the code base and document how to use it. It is an old-style extension that allows supplying user-defined functions to be called when certain array operations are performed. But the code is somewhat twisty. I will probably have to do this.
Here are some ideas that have been floating around amongst the development team:
