Package: pdksh
Version: 5.2.14-12
Severity: normal
File: /bin/ksh


I am getting an esthetical bug on ksh. (well, I don't know how to describe it) :-)
The problem is that I have a line at my .bashrc, like this:

export PS1='\033[0;32m[\u@\h] \033[0;33m\w\033[0;39m
$ '

On bash, it interprets like that:

[naoliv@biolinux] ~

But when I change to ksh:

\033[0;32m[\u@\h] \033[0;33m\w\033[0;39m

It reades the PS1 variable, but it just print it, without interpreting.
I think that ksh should print the PS1 variable like bash, or at least,
use another thing in the place.

as discussed earlier, this is not a bug.

guy. But he's always right! In every fsckin' situation, he's right. Even
with his deeply perverted taste in software and borked ambition towards
broken OSes - in the end, he's damn right about it :(! […] works in mksh
