Name        : mksh
Product     : Fedora 16
Version     : 40c
Release     : 1.fc16
URL         : http://www.mirbsd.de/mksh.htm
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 R40c collects stable development, mostly fixes:

 * Fix ${foo%\?} in -o sh
 * Fix spelling mistakes
 * Fix bugs spotted during porting to OPENSTEP
 * Unbreak building stristr with MKSH_ASSUME_UTF8 defined
 * Fix most of the issues Jerker Bäck encountered on Interix
 * Wrap access(2) as it may return false positive for X_OK on root
 * Upper bound Emacs mode command repeat by input line length
 * Improve CPPFLAGS mangling in Build.sh
 * Several comment, documentation and website fixes/updates
 * Avoid identifiers and cpp(1) macros with two underscores in a row, and those with a trailing underscore; they are reserved for the OS
 * Fix accidental behavioural change wrt some built-in parameters
 * Port to MSYS
 * Interix select(2) bug workaround
 * Manpage fixes
 * Deprecate the “command line begins with ‘!’ for fc -e -” wbx hack
 * Promote x=(a b); x+=(c d) to a core mksh(1) feature
 * Testsuite fixes for Hurd, MSYS; warning fixes for dietlibc
 * Fix R40 regression misparsing $(case x in (x) :; esac)
