Bash shell download

Howdeeeeehhhhh!!!! From Chippewa PA - Yuk Yuk Yuk.

It's been f'ing 20 degrees here since Halloween. I live, eat and sleep in an overcoat.

I'm implementing that HISTTIMEFORMAT bash shell solution and can't find a live link for downloading HP-UX bash. I do not find BASH in insight manager for 11.23??????

This is for time stamping commands executed from the command line and stored in .sh_history.

UNLESS anyone knows of a KSH or POSIX or BOURNE shell equivalent doing the same thing?

Re: Bash shell download

Hi:

You can fetch a 'bash' binary from the HP-UX Porting Centre. You will need all of the runtime dependencies too, so I suggest using the 'depothelper' script to get everything:

Regards!

No such feature in KSH, POSIX or BOURNE. There are a number of history file features that are only found in bash. AIX has a version of bash that supports EXTENDED_HISTORY=ON but this variable has no effect in HP-UX.

I haven't seen bash offered in the Internet Express collection.
