Description kumarsri 2000-10-21 13:27:07 EDT
The following used to work before with the older versions of ksh bundled 
with 6.2 and earlier and now fails to work with REDHAT 7.0

Please fix !


(put these lines into a file called ps1 and type ". ps1")

typeset -u uname
export _s
unset _a
unset _b
unset _c
id | IFS="()" read _a _b _c
if test "$_b" = ""
        _b=`id --user --name`
uname="$_b @ $(uname -n)"
typeset -RZ2 _x1 _x2 _x3
let SECONDS=$(date '+3600*%H+60*%M+%S')
PS1=${TIME}" ($uname)
# "

Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-10-22 16:50:11 EDT
It works for me...

[teg@hoser teg]$ ksh
$ echo $PATH
$ . ps1
ksh: .: ps1: not found
$ . ~/ps1 

As you can see, you need to use the full path since "." isn't in the path by
default. When added, the filename is enough.
Comment 3 kumarsri 2000-10-25 20:20:46 EDT
Please note - IT IS NOT FIXED!
The problem is that the time does NOT show up!

It shows up as :: even in your output above.

But the time shows up with older version of pdksh!
Comment 4 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-10-26 10:39:27 EDT
OK, verified. Will look into it.
Comment 5 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-11-28 15:26:03 EST
The patch which causes this to fail, is the patch from the pdksh author which
fixes bug #10758 (a problem with "-x") Argh.
Comment 6 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-11-28 16:22:45 EST
Fixed, in pdksh-5.2.14-9 which should show up in Rawhide someday soon.
