Yeah. Sucks. Iâm toying with the idea of writing a second test driver
in mksh, for when you know the shell âalmostâ works. Helps on embedded
systems (that have no Perl), too.

There were some later patches, but one of it broke BSD make.

No, I put a licence on code which I have copyright and moral rights
that I cannot waive under German UrhG on. I wrote and rewrote massive
amounts of code in mksh. I also note that I donât seem to have received
an eMail from you regarding mksh, in the last 5 or so years.
