In case you didn't know mawk (available by ftp on yet: it's
much faster than other awk implementations (standard awk on some
Unix-variants and gawk). It generates an internal byte code, which can
also be listed - this might give some hints for improvement, or
possibly serve as starting point for translation to C. Of course,
whether that helps much depends on the real bottleneck of your
particular problem.
