It was quite a few years ago now, so I can't remember where I read it, but I think 22nd April 1977 refers to the day awk was initially released, though I might be misremembering that. I regret I didn't record anything more than the date in my birthday reminders list.

I've just spent about an hour googling and can't shed any light on it, unfortunately. Sorry.

Much thanks!

I'm curious - what is the basis for saying that today is AWK's birthday?
