DL: Hi,
DL: I get a feeling that pdksh has a limit on the size of history
DL: file 700kb.  However quick grepping does not reveal any
DL: hard coded magic numbers.  Does anybody know if such
DL: a limit exists?

have you used ulimit -a to see the extents of your resource limits?
My bets are the answer is there.

Assignment:  Think about and expound upon the possibilities of these two

    a)  the Roman Empire had been defeated early on? (religious implications)
    b)  the Stock Market had not crashed? (economical/political implications)
