Scripting languages and familiar tools ensure that the valuable programming expertise of UNIX developers, and the power of commands such as scp, sftp, secure X, KornShell
, CShell, awk, telnet server, xterm, rsh, rlogin, secure utilities and Perl, do not have to be discarded when Windows systems are introduced into a UNIX environment.
Along with adding more features as listed in the ksh93 specification and providing the ability to save and restore the Kornshell
environment the new MKS Kornshell
claims performance gains of up to 200% in terms of initial start up as well as in running scripts and script based applications.
