AWK and Perl Scripts: Last updated 2010-06-20

While doing my other jobs, I often write AWK, Perl, and recently even Python scripts to help me accomplish certain tasks. The scripts here are the ones which I think might be useful to other people, maybe even you.

Feel free to browse through my collection and take any scripts which might help you. If you want to know more about AWK, you can borrow the book Awk Words from my bookshelf.

Here is a list of the scripts, in the order I added them. Each of the scripts is stored on its own page, along with a description. Some of the script pages also have notes about how to use them, or batch files or utilities which may make them more useful.

Note: Since I reorganized this collection, several of the simpler scripts are not available here. You can still find them on the old page.

Do you have a script which I might find useful? Did you find a problem in one of my scripts? Write to Rob to let me know.
- Read my book on AWK.
- Read about Friday the 13th and other bugs.
- Read more of my ideas on programming.
- Go back to the front gate.

Without tools he is nothing, with tools he is all.
Thomas Carlyle, 1834
