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
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.
