oksh project is a port of OpenBSD's version of ksh for Linux.
The OpenBSD people have cleaned up and enhanced PD ksh with great features. E. g.
works like under bash (try this with a standard PD ksh, like the one from NetBSD).
For Linux there were only the standard PD ksh and mksh from MirOS. Unfortunatly mksh was buggy and not entirely Bourne compatible and lacks the newest features of OpenBSDs ksh
So I ported the OpenBSD version of ksh to Linux.
Warning: This is a crude hack with some stuff from mksh and will only work on Linux, it hasn't been tested very well.
