non-critical impact:

ksh - functional differences (NcWn126)

CMD Impacts

Problem description

There are several functional differences between the Korn shell (ksh) on Tru64 UNIX, which is functionally equivalent to the POSIX shell, and standard shell (ksh) on HP-UX.

Examples of functional differences include support of the $USER environment variable; varying levels of support for internationalized range expressions; and varying name limits.

Solution description

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