I need to install gawk for the Pi 2 without connecting to the internet for a class I am teaching on intranets. Any ideas? I can move the sources via a usb stick.

  • mawk is the version of awk usually installed. Why not limit the lessons to a common subset of awk between mawk and gawk? – joan Dec 12 '15 at 16:05
  • I'm trying to compile a routing package that requires gawk and will not compile with mawk. – G Howser Dec 13 '15 at 21:34

Assuming you are running Raspbian, download the deb package for Jessie or Wheezy Copy it to the Pi (via flashdrive or card reader). Then install it:

dpkg -i name_of_downloaded_file.

Alternatively, you could use awk which I believe is preinstalled.
