Question kshrc

An odd problem using .kshrc, if I run with this in my home login directory it works fine other than if I use 'man', where each word of the manual entry is on a seperate line ?. I'm using AIX 5.3 (it worked fine on 5.2). Anyone seen this before ?

Try posting that kshrc. I see some documentation that says that AIX has infocmp. So in a ksh shell that has run that kshrc, run the command "infocmp" and also post the results.

You could try adding something like this to your .kshrc:

export PAGER=more
export PAGER=pg
export PAGER=less

If that doesn't work it's most likely related to your terminal capabilities as suggested in the previous post.

Depending on your Unix version "infocmp" might not work, the alternative is "untic".

Thanks for the advice, I managed to overcome the issue in the end by amending kshrc slightly.
