non-critical impact:

sh - functional differences (NcWn125)

CMD Impacts

Problem description

There are several functional differences between the Bourne shell (sh) on Tru64 UNIX and the POSIX shell (sh) on HP-UX.

Examples of differences include support for varying environment variables, including USER; initialization procedures for some environment variables; variable name limits; default export behavior for variables in the initial environment; and reserved file descriptors.

Solution description

Because sh supplies a rich set of functionality, details on the differences between the two implementations and recommendations for resolving differences are described in the Migrating from Tru64 UNIX to HP-UX Shells white paper.
