A small bot written in 100% GNU Awk, requires GNU Awk version 3.1.1. Has ability to search google, search the awk man page for descriptions of functions and built in variables. Accepts a simple configuration file, and has a small wrapper written in sh for automatic restarts. Goal is to eventually become a clone of info bot with awk adaptations to prove to those fools in #perl on freenode that awk really *is* a programming language :)
AWKBot uses mysql.awk? to connect to, and query, a MySQL database where it will store information you give it, and recall it later. It also uses this to track karma points, and maybe more in the future.
Note: This project is idle, but awkbot is running in #awk
