How comes running
man awk gives
No manual entry for awk? I frankly have never personally installed Awk on my Archlinux systems, but I've just found on the current one, the last I installed, there's no
man awk, which is strange.
man gawk works fine, on the other hand.
Here's the version plus other possibly relevant outputs:
