 B.1.1 Getting the 'gawk' Distribution
 -------------------------------------
 
 There are two ways to get GNU software:
 
    * Copy it from someone else who already has it.
 
    * Retrieve 'gawk' from the Internet host 'ftp.gnu.org', in the
      directory '/gnu/gawk'.  Both anonymous 'ftp' and 'http' access are
      supported.  If you have the 'wget' program, you can use a command
      like the following:
 
           wget https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gawk/gawk-4.2.0.tar.gz
 
    The GNU software archive is mirrored around the world.  The
 up-to-date list of mirror sites is available from the main FSF website
 (https://www.gnu.org/order/ftp.html).  Try to use one of the mirrors;
 they will be less busy, and you can usually find one closer to your
 site.
 
    You may also retrieve the 'gawk' source code from the official Git
 repository; for more information see ⇒Accessing The Source.
