Unique KSH history

Useful if you want each of your concurrent login sessions to have their own unique shell history. Very useful if different people are logged in as the same user but doing different things (ie root user on a central system).

HISTFILE=$HOME/.ksh_hist`tty`
[ -d `dirname $HISTFILE` ] || mkdir -p `dirname $HISTFILE`

Works on Solaris' ksh and RedHat 8.0's pdksh

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.

Useful:
