Programmers often take awk "as is", never thinking to use it as a lab in which
they can explore other language extensions.
An alternate approach is to treat the Awk code base as a reusable library
of parsers, regular expression engines, etc etc and to make modifications
to the lanugage. This second approach is taken in the Awk A*
project and, as shown here, in XMLgawk.
XMLgawk is one of the most exciting new innovations
seen in Gawk for many years.
It shows that Awk is more than "just" a text processor: rather
it is also a candidate technology for modern XML-based web applications.

XML processing, plus libraries for other extensions to Gawk.
XMLgawk is an experimental extension of the GNU Awk interpreter. It includes a small XML parsing library which is built upon the Expat XML parser. The parsing library is a very thin layer on top of Expat (implementing a pull-interface) and can also be used without GNU Awk to read XML data files.
Both, XMLgawk and its XML puller library only require an ANSI C compatible compiler (GCC works, as do most vendors' ANSI C compilers) and a 'make' program.
XMLgawk provides the following functionality including:
