I try to stick to generic Bourne shell scripting, which works with
both Korn shell and Bash.  But then, I'm pretty oblivious as to
what is Korn and what isn't, since I can test it on pdksh.

Whenever I need examples I look in the /etc/rc* scripts, which your
operating system may or may not have (anymore).
