1.63. ksh

1.63.1. RHEA-2010:0694: enhancement update

An updated Ksh package that brings enhanced ulimit support is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
KornShell is a shell programming language which is also compatible with "sh", the original Bourne Shell. KSH-93 is the most recent version of the KornShell by David Korn of AT&TBell Laboratories.
This updated ksh package adds the following enhancement:
* previously the ksh ulimit builtin lacked support for RLIMIT_RTPRIO and RLIMIT_NICE. This did not allow full usage of ksh by script writers. With this update, the ksh package adds the ability to read and set both RLIMIT_RTPRIO and RLIMIT_NICE with the ulimit builtin. ( BZ#626790)
KornShell users, especially those who require RLIMIT_RTPRIO or RLIMIT_NICE, are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which adds this enhancement.
