Summary:                    busybox awk: missing gawk extension "length(array)"
Description: 
as of gawk 3.1.5, the builtin function length() can be applied to arrays
and returns the number of array elements, e.g. 

# gawk 'BEGIN { split("1 2 3",a); print length(a) }'
3

busybox awk does not yet support this feature and returns "0".
