Here's a dirt simple method of sprucing up your AWK output under Windows.
Requires Windows, and the WSH scripting host, both of which are native to any modern Windows installation.
To use this method, follow these three steps:
This example will capture the output of your AWK program and render that output dynamically to an HTML stream within a graphical window.
<html> <head> <title>My application</title> <hta:application id="MyApp" applicationName="My application" border="thick" borderStyle="normal" caption="yes" contextMenu="yes" icon="" innerBorder="no" maximizeButton="yes" minimizeButton="yes" navigable="yes" scroll="yes" scrollFlat="no" selection="yes" showInTaskBar="yes" singleInstance="yes" sysMenu="yes" version="1.0" windowState="normal"> </head> <body> <script type="text/vbscript"> Set WshShell = CreateObject("Wscript.shell") Set objExec= WshShell.Exec("%comspec% /c gawk -f program.awk datafile") output = objExec.StdOut.ReadAll document.write("<pre>" & output & "</pre>") </script> </body> </html>

xmonthly is a hybrid shell script (part bash/gawk/xtoolkit intrinsics) that displays an overview of reminders based on the current month.
It is a simple example of how to use X-window tools with Gawk.
xmonthly employs gawk's implementation of the strftime() function in order to discern the current month. Non-english users must use the 1st three letters of each month in the xmonthly database as determined by the end user's local.
