For technical support, please email:

If you have incorporated our software into a product and wish to continue to ship the incorporated product, please email
I haven't quite decided what to do, but we will support you some way. We can probably even provide additional manuals. I will update this website when we have an approach worked out.

If you need to expand a site license, please email us, and we will provide a note to permit you to do so legally.

The news group comp.lang.awk contains general questions and answers about the awk programming language, and occasionally includes some articles about TAWK.

If any very experienced C programmer is interested in continuing to expand the software please email me.

Thank you to all our customers.
