OT, and probably a stupid question, but is the Dave Korn on this

Nope. And I used to wonder the same thing, so it can't possibly be a
stupid question, right?
I did do some googling before I asked this question and found out
that the "real" Dave Korn is a research fellow at AT&T while "our"
Dave Korn has an email addres at a firm is essentially a fabless
silicon house that specializes in highspeed wireless connectivity.
But then I found out that the "real" Dave Korn is the primary author of
UWIN, which is where the ksh that "our" Dave Korn is talking about
comes from. So I got confused again.
Just to be clear, "our" Dave Korn provides excellent, well considered
answers to questions on the list, so I'm not diminishing his
value at all :-)
OK, I guess that's enough frivolity on the list. Back to work...
