Name        : mksh
Product     : Fedora 22
Version     : 52
Release     : 1.fc22
URL         : https://www.mirbsd.org/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.

output reentrant if name is a reserved word  * Zero-pad seconds in “time” output

afree() even if arg is NULL  * Fix tree-printing and reentrancy of multiple here
documents  * Work around LP#1030581 by permitting exactly one space after  *
Code quality work, cleanups  * New code for here documents/strings with several
bugfixes  * Stop using issetugid(2) for ±p checks, wrong tool for the job  *
Reintroduce some -o posix changes lost in 2005, plus fixes  * Make “source” into
a built-in command  * Drop “stop” alias, lksh(1) functionality to auto-unalias
* Fix \u0000 ignored in $'…' and print  * Improve portability of Build.sh  *
Improve portability of testsuite  * Fix tilde expansion for some substitutions
