Details

Updated ksh packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 6.

KornShell (KSH) is a Unix shell developed by AT&T Bell Laboratories, which is
backward-compatible with the Bourne shell (Bash) and includes many features of
the C shell. The most recent version is KSH-93. KornShell complies with the
POSIX.2 standard (IEEE Std 1003.2-1992).

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, KornShell (KSH) used a wrong file descriptor for reading a file
through command substitution if the standard input (stdin), the standard output
(stdout), or the standard error (stderr) was closed. As a consequence, reading a
file using command substitution returned an empty string. A patch has been
applied to use a different file descriptor, which does not collide with stdin,
stdout and stderr when reading the file, and command substitution now works as
expected. (BZ#1072456)

Users of ksh are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this
bug.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata relevant
