gawk: Debugger

 
 14 Debugging 'awk' Programs
 ***************************
 
 It would be nice if computer programs worked perfectly the first time
 they were run, but in real life, this rarely happens for programs of any
 complexity.  Thus, most programming languages have facilities available
 for "debugging" programs, and now 'awk' is no exception.
 
    The 'gawk' debugger is purposely modeled after the GNU Debugger (GDB)
 (https://www.gnu.org/software/gdb/) command-line debugger.  If you are
 familiar with GDB, learning how to use 'gawk' for debugging your program
 is easy.
