I started to learn awk today ;-) See an awk script attached that simulates "src/lib-fts/word-break-data.sh < src/lib-fts/PropList.txt > src/lib-fts/word-break-data.c". This script is pretty preliminary, although it does what it is supposed to do, if I am not mistaken. Please, give it a try.

It lacks a proper way of referencing stolen code in function mystrtonum (never wrote open source code); I did steal that code in order to stick to awk instead of gawk, which might be a portability issue as well. This script lacks any error handling, as well. Thus, consider it pre-alpha.

I do not have the time to continue for the coming days. Thus, anyone feeling to jump in: just do it ;-)
