mksh R59c

R59c bundles tons of bug and portability fixes:

  • Update character widths (Jamo bugfix)
  • Don’t use test -e in Build.sh
  • Mac OSX-specific: ensure ulimit -m is present even if it is an alias of ulimit -v (10.4+), for compatibility
  • Port to A/UX
  • Add older ulimit(2) support, if setrlimit(2) is missing
  • More EBCDIC-safeness (slightly…)
  • Allow all tests to pass with very old Perl 5
  • Fix test.sh’s output of tested/expected shell version
  • Let A/UX default CC to gcc
  • Drop “is being ported” warning from A/UX and OS/2, they work
  • Include <pwd.h> only if MKSH_NOPWNAM is not defined
  • command -v must print absolute pathnames, even if $PATH contains relative pathnames under which the command in question was found
  • Fix absolute pathnames relative to / on nōn-OS/2, too
  • Fix some more corner cases related to pathname normalisation
  • FAQ: ${@?}: bad substitution documentation
  • Fix some constructs pointed out by https://www.deepcode.ai/
  • Clean, refactor, optimise some code
  • Allow ^Xe on empty command line; quote editor argument properly
  • FAQ: an IRC user suggests ^Xe for ad-hōc scripts and multiline
  • Eliminate many unnecessary calls to (re‑)allocate memory
  • Correct order during tree-printing of heredocs
  • Drop some possibly unreached and probably broken code
  • Increase FAQ2HTML.sh compatibility with pre-POSIX shells
  • Demote some (unlikely called) output code to !MKSH_SMALL
