This server is about awk scripting, more precise: scripting with gawk.

# awk 'BEGIN { printf ("Hello World!\n"); exit (0) }'
Hello World!

Most of the content is in English but parts are still in German and I think I'll keep it the way it is.

Please notice that I'm working on the server's content as I have time and ideas. There is no plan and no time schedule, it's a hobby thing. If you like to send comments, your favourite scripts or questions, send them to But do not expect immediate responses since I don't read my e-mail everyday.

This brings me to the next point. If you're sending e-mail please make sure that your subject shows that your e-mail is related to this server or one of the programs found here. Don't use subjects like "Hello", "Suggestions" or similiar. Such e-mails will most likely go directly into the trash with all the other spam I receive. Use something like "ftpysnc: bug report and feature request" instead.

This server uses the yawk wiki. If you're new to this and interested in what this means you might want to read the WikiUsageNotes.
