Here is an open source solution.  It is an AWK to C converter

Actually, these websites have the awk files, but when I try to open them, windows does not recognize the files. When I tried it with perl, it worked because it had an executor, which was PERL Command Line Interpreter. What is it for AWK?

awk is also a command line interpreter.  It may be called gawk or something else, depending on what program you use.  It's sufficiently obscure and UNIXy that there may not be a Windows package that sets up file associations for you.  (File associations are what find the right program to process a file automatically when you open it.)

You can download a command-line interpreter for Windows from

http://cm.bell-labs.com/cm/cs/who/bwk/awk95.exe

Then you can run it from a command prompt.  You can give it the name of a script to run as a command line argument.

To run an awk program it can either be from the stdin or from a file.  Here is a simple awk program that counts the lines of the input stream
lc.awk:
{
    lineCount++;
}
END {
   print lineCount;
}

To run it using GAWK, you would use the following:
gawk -f lc.awk testFile.txt

which would process testFile.txt and count the # of lines.
