Split problem

I am using Debian Linux 2.2.17 latest kernel.
2.2.17 #1 Sat Oct 28 17:12:02 CEST 2000 i586 unknown
Libc6 2.1.96-1

I  think  the  split  (split --help) utility is supressing the "split"
function of AWK/Shell.
See man awk/split for desired funcionality.
Can be a problem as split is VERY useful function of awk/shell

$ echo 9/29/83 |awk'{split($0,date,"/");print date[3]}'
bash: awk{split($0,date,"/");print date[3]}: No such file or directory

I have tried other kind of variations too.

Best regards,
