Advisory: RHBA-2011:0939-2
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-07-18
Last updated on: 2011-08-03

Details

An updated ksh package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

KSH-93 is the most recent version of the KornShell by David Korn of AT&T Bell
Laboratories. KornShell is a shell programming language which is also compatible
with sh, the original Bourne Shell.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, ksh treated an array declaration as a definition. Consequently,
the array contained one element after the declaration. This bug has been fixed,
and now an array is correctly reported as empty after a declaration. (BZ#716375)

All users of ksh are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes
this bug.
