Just one thing: Our ksh has some highly annoying bugs and/or
non-features in interactive use mostly:
home/end/ctrl-arrow won't work, also Fn or ^L etc.
Just try (in emacs mode) bind "^[[8~"=end-of-line
(bind -m ..=^E won't work too)
Also the scrolling (non-wrapping) line editor sucks big time.
Also the lack of a .kshrc file or whatever forces you to put ksh
specific stuff in .profile or $ENV and ifdef it out which doesnt
Does it make any sense to file a PR? (because pd ksh is "external?)
Are there any chances that our ksh will be enhanced one day?
Is PD KSH still maintained? The copyright suggests its from '99?
