If AWK has been installed in a non-standard location, the environment variable AWK_PATH must be set to specify the location of the executable. Use this function to set AWK_PATH in your .Renviron file. Most users should NOT set AWK_PATH, only do so if you have installed AWK in non-standard location and auk cannot find it.

auk_set_awk_path(path, overwrite = FALSE)

Arguments

path

character; path to the AWK executable on your system, e.g. "C:/cygwin64/bin/gawk.exe" or "/usr/bin/awk".

overwrite

logical; should the existing AWK_PATH be overwritten if it has already been set in .Renviron.

Value

Edits .Renviron, then returns the AWK path invisibly.
