SYNOPSIS

DESCRIPTION

       Igawk  is a simple shell script that adds the ability to have ‘‘include
       files’’ to gawk(1).

       AWK programs for igawk are the same as for gawk, except that, in  addi-
       tion, you may have lines like

              @include getopt.awk

       in  your program to include the file getopt.awk from either the current
       directory or one of the other directories in the search path.


OPTIONS

       See gawk(1) for a full description of the AWK language and the  options
       that gawk supports.


EXAMPLES

       cat << EOF > test.awk
       @include getopt.awk

       BEGIN {
            while (getopt(ARGC, ARGV, "am:q") != -1)
                 ...
       }
       EOF

       igawk -f test.awk
