Updated ksh Shift_JIS packages that add one enhancement are now available forRed Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The ksh packages provide the most recent version of the Korn shell by David Kornof AT&T Bell Laboratories. The Korn shell is a shell programming language, whichis upward-compatible with the Bourne shell (Bash). Shift JIS (SJIS) is acharacter encoding for the Japanese language. The “ksh Shift_JIS” packagesprovide ksh support for the Shift_JIS encoding.This update adds the following enhancement:* Previously, the “read” ksh command did not skip SJIS-encoded multibytecharacters under certain circumstances. As a consequence, some of theSJIS-encoded input data could be lost. With this update, “read” has beenmodified to skip SJIS-encoded multibyte characters, and the input data loss nolonger occurs in the described situation. (BZ#1161459)Users who require Shift_JIS encoding support in the Korn shell should upgrade tothese updated packages, which add this enhancement.
