There is an AWK to C translator available from the AT&T toolbox. I used
it once, and it worked OK. I've seen references to a AWK to C++
translator written at bell labs (or BELLCORE, or one of those phone lab
places :-), but never released.
You might also want to compare different versions of AWK. There is a PD
version called mawk which is somewhat faster than nawk, or GNU's gawk.
