Re: bin/39002 (harmful AWK extension: non-portable escaped character)

Synopsis: harmful AWK extension: non-portable escaped character

The patch has been applied. Now awk produces the same warnings other awk
implementations, and awk programmers can either fix their code or live
with the warnings. Another option is to add a command line warning flag,
but I'd rather not, since it is easy to fix the code and it makes the
scripts more portable.
