It looks like the error comes from awk. Does the Reporter commands log
show that awk is being called?

If so, add the following lines to !ScriptSED.languages.awk

  Do Report <StrongED$Script_Script>
  Do Report <StrongED$Script_Infile>
  Do Report <StrongED$Script_Outfile>

That should show what parameters are being passed to awk.

Another thing to check is awk itself. There have been a number of ports
some which are quite old now and may no loger work correctly on modern
hardware. I tested mawk from PackMan on an ARMiniX and that worked fine.
