Error description

  • ksh tilde expansion may fail
    Here is an example. task.sh is a ksh script:
    #!/usr/bin/ksh
    a=~$1
    echo $a
    
    run the script ( suppose user test1's home folder is
    /home/test1 )
    $ ./task.sh test1
    The output will be:
    ~test1
    
    The correct output should be /home/test1
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • Now tilde expansion will happen in assignment cases where   is
    the first character after assignment with a valid username.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Appropriate code changes to expand tilde in assignment cases
    where tilde is the first character after '='
