This package is based on the package 'mksh' from project 'shells'.
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.
mksh has UTF-8 support (in substring operations and the Emacs
editing mode) and, while HEAD corresponds to OpenBSD 4.8-current
ksh (without GNU bash-like PS1 and fancy character classes),
adheres to SUSv4 and is much more robust. The code has
been cleaned up and simplified, bugs fixed, standards compliance
added, and several enhancements (for extended compatibility
to other modern shells – as well as a couple of its own)
