CamelCase in AWK

Example for versions Jawk 1.02, gawk 3.1.6, mawk 1.3.3

mawk provides no function length to get the size of the array, neither it can be used in Jawk — an attempt results in “Cannot evaluate an unindexed array.” runtime error.

Instead we can use the fact that function split returns the number of string fragments it extracted from the string. Otherwise this example is identical to this one.

{   text = $0;
    N = split(text, words, /[^a-zA-Z]+/);
    for (i=1; i<=N; i++) {
        res = res toupper(substr(words[i],1,1)) tolower(substr(words[i],2));
    print res
