Yeah, mawk is what I use too.  It doesn't have quite as many features as
gawk, but it's wicked fast (I use it for things like analyzing files that are
100s of megabytes in size), and it implements all the most important things.

Not sure if it's really being maintained anymore, though; my man page (on
debian, which generally keeps up-to-date) is dated 1994...

P.S.  All information contained in the above letter is false,
      for reasons of military security.
