No quite; it's a shellscript (executed by bash) that immediately (and only) calls awk.
make it executable, and then run:
./haversine.awk -31.8 116.0 -31.9 115.9
As provided, it reads the lats+lons from command-line arguments, but you may wish to modify the
script for them to be read from standard input.
