Korn Shell Initialization Script (.kshrc)

ksh and xterm screen shot

This is my Korn shell initialization script (.kshrc) featuring: Note that the script is in a tar.gz archive to preserve the control characters used within the text file.

I use the script above with ksh93 (version string: Version M 1993-12-28 m+) and xterm (XFree86 4.2.0(165)) on GNU/Linux. ksh may be downloaded at no cost for many platforms.
