Answer:

AWK connects.

1.Alfred Aho,  Peter Weinberger(who is missing), 2. Brian Kernighan are the A,W and K respectively.

Auk, the bird is the tool’s mascot and they insist that Awk be pronounced as Auk rather than awk as in gawk.

GAWK is the GNU version of the same tool, which was the hint and some of you got that too :)

    Connect : AWK which is a general purpose programming language that is designed for processing text-based data, either in files or data streams. The name AWK is derived from the family names of its authors — Alfred V. Aho, Peter Weinberger, and Brian Kernighan

    AWK is mentioned in the Single UNIX Specification as one of the mandatory utilities of a Unix operating system.

    1. Alfred V. Aho
    2. Brian Kernighan
    3. Bird Auk which acts an emblem of the language such as on The AWK Programming Language book cover

    Peter Weinberger is the person missing

    The connection is AWK, or auk.

    1. Alfred Aho
    2. Brian Kernighan
    3. auk

    Missing: Peter Weinberger


  3. bs

    Weinberger is missing from the awk trinity of 1)Aho and 2) Kernighan. 3) goes awk-awk-awk

    1. Alfred V. Aho
    2. Brian Kernighan
    3. Parakeet Auklets (a type of auk, a bird)

    The Missing Person is Peter Weinberger.

    These 3 people together made AWK, the programming language for text processing.

    The clue, Stare, refers to the gawk (GNU awk) tool.

    Awk; Weinberger.

    1) Al Aho
    2) Brian Kernigham
    3) The birds “Auk”
    The connect is : Awk ( programming language)
    The person missing is : Peter Weinberger.( The “K” of AWK)

    Regards,

    AWK – Named after Alfred Aho, Peter Weinberger(missing form the pic list), and Brian Kernighan.
    The cover of O`Reilly`s “Effective Awk Programming” shows an auk (species of bird) as in pic 3.
    Title Clue : G(nu)AWK


  8. 1. Alfred Aho
    2. Brian Kernighan
    3. Auk

    Connect : AWK
    Missing person : Peter J. Weinberger

    AWK – W (Peter Weinerger is missing) – A, K, and the auks are seen.
