--- Comment #6 from Yuri <yuri at rawbw.com> ---
Does awk allow zeros in strings, and handle such strings properly?

STL's std::string for example does allow zeros in the middle of strings, and
handle them properly. On the contrary, shells don't allow zeros in strings.

If awk generally doesn't handle zeros properly these two become separate
issues. One is to print a zero to the output, the other one is to fix zero
handling in strings. IMO, just fix them one by one.
