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

The mksh packages provide the MirBSD enhanced version of the Public Domain Kornshell (pdksh), a Bourne-compatible shell, which is largely similar to theoriginal AT&T Korn shell. Shift JIS (SJIS) is a character encoding for theJapanese language. The “mksh Shift_JIS” packages provide mksh support for theShift_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#1165571)Users who require Shift_JIS encoding support in the Korn shell shouldupgrade to these updated packages, which add this enhancement.
