After updating to the newest 1.7.7 version of cygwin (you have to do uname -a to know which one you are running) I found that awk was replaced by gawk, which not only would affect many of my scripts and shell functions but also to me feels harder to type in the command line.

I found that you could simply copy one to another so to have awk as an alias of gawk.
In my setup, all it took was:

cd c:/cygwin/bin
cp gawk awk
