Name        : mksh
Product     : Fedora 10
Version     : 39
Release     : 1.fc10
URL         : http://www.mirbsd.de/mksh/
Summary     : MirBSD enhanced version of the Korn Shell
Description :
mksh is the MirBSD enhanced version of the Public Domain Korn shell (pdksh),
a bourne-compatible shell which is largely similar to the original AT&T Korn
shell. It includes bug fixes and feature improvements in order to produce a
modern, robust shell good for interactive and especially script use, being a
bourne shell replacement, pdksh successor and an alternative to the C shell.

Update Information:

mksh R39 evolved into these through various means:   - Shut up a bogus gcc
warning during configuration process   - Spell AT&T consistently in the source
code   - Tweak mksh(1) manual page, from wbx@ and "lewellyn:#ksh"   -
dot.mkshrc: fix $@ vs. $* mix-up   - dot.mkshrc: add DJB cdb hash function   -
Sync with oksh: fix Vi editing mode word erase handling, again   - Skip
whitespace between POSIX style shell function name and its definition
parentheses during detection if an alias of the same name already exists to be
more robust (Debian Closes: #535970)   - Build system improvements for ACK and
nwcc, both on Debian sid   - Fix spelling error in changelog discovered by
Lintian   - Aligh "set -o nounset" / "set -u" behaviour with future POSIX
standard, as discussed with GNU bash maintainers, David Korn from AT&T ksh93,
and The Open Group; prompted by use in Debian; Closes: #539538   - add an
unsupported way to make printf(1) a builtin   - Build system and regression test
code and comment improvements: better and more comments matching reality better;
more reliability w.r.t. passed CPPFLAGS; more of the MKSH_SMALL changes may be
overridden, all of them are now enumerated on the webpage; fixed some breakage;
portability   - MKSH_NOPWNAM and MKSH_SMALL will now both disable the ~fac/
(homedir) expansion code wholly if defined, not just getpwnam(3) calls   -
shells without job control no longer define the standard "stop" and "suspend"
aliases (they are pointless anyway); regression tests know   - use system RCS ID
macros on MirBSD if decent enough   - shut up bogus gcc 4.5/trunk warnings
caused by over-optimisation   - restore ANSI C compilability broken in R38
(speed up, even)   - use memcpy(3) ipv strlcpy(3) if possible and safe and
secure    mksh R38c contains the following fixes:   - Fix regression tests on
OSes insisting on a shebang (Cygwin)   - QNX 6.4.2 ed(1) is said to have the
bugs fixed   - Build.sh bugfixes: -DMKSH_BINSHREDUCED can also be given without
-DMKSH_SMALL; allow HAVE_REALPATH=x and HAVE_REVOKE=x in the environment to re-
enable these even if -DMKSH_SMALL disables them by default, like mknod already
did   - -DMKSH_ASSUME_UTF8=0 skips the environment checks, like
-DMKSH_ASSUME_UTF8=1, but disables the utf8-mode   - Apply some more KNF –
style(9) – to the source; clean it up and further optimise for small size   -
Fix segfaults caused by missing check for end of input in the tokeniser on "let
--" and other input   - Make Vi editing mode ^W behave like Emacs mode's   - If
no killpg(3) is available, use kill(2) and hope it works   - -DMKSH_NO_LIMITS
skips trying to build the ulimit code
