Top Forums UNIX for Advanced & Expert Users Running scripts without a hashbang - ksh anomaly?
# 8  
I recall that on some UNIX systems, HP-UX as I recall, the ksh would run ksh scripts in the parent process, effectively sourcing it, so it changed the parent environment. I had to add () to a bunch of old scripts to protect my shell process! However, I may have had bad #! lines, which still does not justify using the parent shell but does imply it might feed it to stdin. So, beware!

Does the #! line allow space between #! and the interpreter path? I saw that near the end of the above referenced thread.

Well, see this thread especially "Part 2 The Format of the #! Line"
