why use haskell to explore cs concepts when you can use one-liners?http://en.literateprograms.org/Factorial_(AWK) or even recreate the state of 1950's AI? http://en.literateprograms.org/Mind_reading_machine_(AWK)

I tinkered with awk on a xenix PC and then used it some in the mid to late 80's for autonomous vehicle control language processing, mainly for quick prototyping before implementing Lex and Yacc. Later, I used it for language filtering systems in the same way in the 1990's. Then I discovered PERL (and PHP).
1988–
1988–1995
Its amazing what this language can be made to do.
1990–1996
Used awk quite a bit for short data processing tasks--however, all of my programs were really minimal at best.

I first learned about Awk in Dave Taylor's 'Teach Yourself Unix in a week'. Once I knew about her, I had to have her.
1997–
1998–
This is one of those great tools that I just don't use nearly enough.
2000–
I have a small handful of one-liners that I couldn't live without.
2001–
Our relationship is made of many brief and satisfying encounters, with no demands either side.
2002–2006
dunno why i ever used awk when i knew perl

Great part of the UNIX toolbox
2006–
I have to check the man page every time I go back to use this, but it's really well written. So useful. Should go in the hall-of-fame, the man page.
2006–
2007–
Used in a couple of bash scripts
2007–2009
Kept seeing it used a lot by Linux users.
2008–
Didn't properly learn to use AWK until very recently. It's like Perl-lite.
2008–
When parsing text by piping to 18 different utilities was cumbersome, I turned to awk. Useful to me also as a poor man's `cut`.
2008–
I suck at awk.
2009–
Took a formal UNIX/Linux class (after having used Linux for almost a decade). This was the only new thing I learned.
