Ah yes... and the INFO hypertext document finds this under:
"Parameter Substitution in the Bourne Shell" or
"Parameter Substitution in the Korn Shell"
(Nice descriptive header for envionment variables don't you think ? :-)
(BTW: Envionment variables for csh are documented in:
"Predefined and Environmental Variables in the C Shell (csh command)"
consistant yes??? :-)
Note that the Bourne shell envionment variable is spelled
and sets the value in minutes. When expire interval is reached the
shell simply exits.
The Korn shell envionment variable is spelled
and specifies the value in SECONDS! Not minutes as specified in the
hypertext doc. See DOC APAR IX17357 for notes that indicate that the
expire limit is documented wrong and that you get a warning message
and 60 additional seconds to enter more commands before the shell exits.
Is this the same for other implementations of ksh?
Anybody know if the csh (on AIX) has such a beast? Info searches do not
