It's not a choice of mine. I'm teaching an advanced course in shell
programming using KSH
(customer's request.) I'm writing the student's assignments in advance just
sure that I know exactly what I'm teaching so that I don't get caught out on
bizarre mysterious error(s) while I'm actually running the course.
The assignment is going to be somewhat complex, creating a web CGI ksh
script that also reads and writes into a MYSQL database.
The idea is that this will teach a lot of more advanced concepts in shell
scripting, including HERE documents, select, ksh features like local
variables in functions
associative arrays and other nifty stuff...
