yawk is a wiki clone written in gawk. I'm still working on it, fixing bugs and adding new features. I decided to write yawk because the available wikis had either not the formatting capabilities I wanted to have (missing table support), used formatting rules I didn't like (and you might not like mine but if you like the rest you can change them) or imposed too much requirements for my understanding of a wiki (mysql database installation with or without php installed). yawk does especially neither require a certain HTTP server like apache nor an installed database. The above things are enough. If you have a recent distribution you should already have it. Try "gawk --version" to see which version you have.

yawk is an CGI script. There are many different HTTP servers around and each has a different configuration. Even the same server can be configured totally different so it's not easy to give a simple installation howto or an installation script.

So I'll describe how to install yawk under a more or less plain Apache server installation. I make the following assumptions about your server:


gawk version 3.1.0 or later installed,
an HTTP server,
some standard UNIX commands and
a small C program that comes with yawk.

What's New in This Release:

This release fixes a serious bug that kept search engines from indexing a yawk-driven wiki.
