Hi:

 

With HP-UX you have two choices:  the Korn88 shell that comes in '/usr/bin/ksh' (by default) or the Korn93 shell that lives in '/usr/dt/bin/dtksh'.  Prior to 11.31 the Korn93 shell was installed by default.  With 11,31 you need to install the CDE bundle to get it.

 

Otherwise, the "latest" shell will be the most recent cumulative 'ksh' (Korn88) patch.

 

Regards!
