This 45 year-old Unix tool is finally getting an upgrade

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

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