Thanks for the question.

I would say, the same way like on other linux or unix systems.

awk -f <program name> <data file>

<prorgam name> must be replace with your awk program, <data file> must be replace with your data file.

I think you can also make it self-executable by inserting

#!/usr/bin/awk -f

in the first line of you awk program and then add the executable permission flag for it.

I hope this helps.

Can you help with this problem?
