MirBSD Korn Shell

mksh is the MirBSD enhanced version of the Public Domain Korn shell (pdksh), a Bourne-compatible shell which is largely similar to the original AT&T Korn shell; mksh is the only pdksh derivate currently being actively developed. It includes bug fixes and feature improvements, in order to produce a modern, robust shell good for interactive and especially script use.
