The name AWK is derived from the surnames of its authors — Alfred Aho, Peter Weinberger, and Brian Kernighan; however, it is commonly pronounced "awk" and not as a string of separate letters.
AWK is one of the early tools to appear in Version 7 Unix and gained popularity as a way to add computational features to a Unix pipeline.
AWK is mentioned in the Single UNIX Specification as one of the mandatory utilities of a Unix operating system.
