Updated pdksh packages that add one enhancement are now available for Red HatEnterprise Linux 5.

The Public Domain Korn Shell (pdksh) implements the KSH-88 programming languagefor both interactive and shell script use. The pdksh packages provide analternative to the KSH-93 implementation of the KornShell for backwardcompatibility. They are also useful in situations where customers need to porttheir scripts from KSH-88 to KSH-93. Shift JIS (SJIS) is a character encodingfor the Japanese language. The pdksh Shift_JIS packages provide pdksh supportfor SJISThis update adds the following enhancement:* Previously, pdksh failed to substitute commands which included SJIS multibytecharacters encoded as “0x5c” or “0x60” in the shell child process. As aconsequence, some of the SJIS-encoded input data could be lost. With thisupdate, pdksh has been modified to read SJIS characters properly, and the inputdata loss no longer occurs. (BZ#1163043)Users who require SJIS encoding support with pdksh should upgrade to theseupdated packages, which add this enhancement.
