Of course, 800K is still pretty big; if possible it's better to just
rewrite in awk (mawk is about 80K using shared libraries, and 115K
_statically_ linked; presumably BB awk is even smaller) or sed (not
sure, it's part of BB, but I think on order of 30-40K).
Remember, the scripts being discussed earlier were _not_ giant programs
for which perl might be justified, just little things.
We are all lying in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.
