.profile not reading .kshrc

Can anyone tell me why .profile would not be reading my .kshrc file?

O/S is SCO 5.06? I've placed echo's before & after setting ENV and
nothing ... help?

Thanks!


Here's .profile

First I would check permissions of the .kshrc file to make sure it can be executed
Second. why don't you call the .kshrc file in the .profile with
. .kshrc

Thanks ...

Looked at that ... perms are set correctly.
I tried calling the .kshrc from with .profile and still nothing.

I did place echos from with the .kshrc file; get the echo's but the
environment is still not being customized.

I know it has to be something real stupid and right in front
of my face.

Which shell is the default shell that u are using?

if it's not ksh, then a lot of the commands in the .kshrc make it invalid, also did you try using the '.' as I mentioned.
I see the first script starts with ':' meaning that it is the regular shell. if the user is supposed to use ksh, set it in the password file and change the : to #!/bin/ksh.

Code:
# cat .profile
.......
........
.......
....
ENV=${HOME}/.kshrc
.........
......

It's that simple
