Gawk does not have either a -i or a -I flag.

I don't see a real reason to add an in-place edit feature. It would complicate
the code in the main loop, and I don't see that there's a big ROI.

It should be possible to provide the equivalent functionality in a shell script
of 50 lines or so.

You're welcome,
