Officially it was written by Aho Weinberger Kernighan but
I suspect Brian did most of the actual coding.

I suspect it was actually a shar ball. I received a version around 1987
when the book (See <http://cm.bell-labs.com/cm/cs/awkbook/>)
was still being written.
I don't know when it was officially distributed or in which distribution.
