Follow-up Comment #7, bug #49126 (project octave):

Re: needing both sed and awk, I haven't look too closely at it, but they
definitely do have different features. I think simple text replacement is much
more easily expressed with sed, and awk is much better at text processing that
requires tracking state or printing large blocks of text in addition to text
substitution or generating new text.

In short, I think everything *could* be done with awk, but it may make the
things that are currently done with sed a little more awkward. Just my
impression from years of using both tools and knowing their strengths and
weaknesses, I would use each in different contexts.
