Does your system have mksh as well? If so this would be a much closer match to ksh93 although date arithmetic is not supported.
Yes, the system has mksh as well. Actually I have some aix scripts, ksh and ksh93. They are kept in separate directories, I am guessing the ksh scripts are ksh88 and ksh93 are obviously 93 as I can see ksh93 with the hash bang. Unfortunately, I do not know which version of AIX had these scripts otherwise I could have guessed the default ksh for that version of AIX.
Also, I have to port these scripts to bash on suse linux. Would that be pesky ?
