gawk: Cygwin

 
 B.3.1.4 Using 'gawk' In The Cygwin Environment
 ..............................................
 
 'gawk' can be built and used "out of the box" under MS-Windows if you
 are using the Cygwin environment (http://www.cygwin.com).  This
 environment provides an excellent simulation of GNU/Linux, using Bash,
 GCC, GNU Make, and other GNU programs.  Compilation and installation for
 Cygwin is the same as for a Unix system:
 
      tar -xvpzf gawk-4.2.0.tar.gz
      cd gawk-4.2.0
      ./configure
      make && make check
 
    When compared to GNU/Linux on the same system, the 'configure' step
 on Cygwin takes considerably longer.  However, it does finish, and then
 the 'make' proceeds as usual.
