Fedora Update Notification
2007-11-10 06:01:00.327052

Name        : mksh
Product     : Fedora 8
Version     : 32
Release     : 1.fc8
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:

In mksh, using pipelines as co-processes is now possible without requiring an additional subshell invocation. In mksh, array indices are now unsigned 32-bit integers; negative values are mapped into the upper half.
