tion, you may have lines like

@include getopt.awk

in your program to include the file getopt.awk from either the current
directory or one of the other directories in the search path.

OPTIONS

See gawk for a full description of the AWK language and the options
that gawk supports.

EXAMPLES
cat << EOF > test.awk
@include getopt.awk

while (getopt(ARGC, ARGV, “am:q”) != -1)

}
EOF
