I have been searching the book <<The AWK programming Language>>for a long time ,and i googled a lot ,i have tried all the possible ways to get the pdf version of this book,but i failed.It seems that there isn't the existence of this book on the Internet at all.
Is there anyone who can help me get the pdf version of this book?

If I understand this correctly, you are looking for a free book to help you learn the AWK reporting language. This can be found here -- free -- and very exhaustive.

Ok. Sorry about the miscommunication.

If this is the book you are talking about, no, you will not find it online for free. However, you can go here, and find a library that has it:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special.../9780201079814

Or of course, you can order it from Amazon/Barnes and Noble.
