Hi,

Are you sure that you are not running it as a csh / tcsh?

Hi,

If you run from the command line

$ ksh
$ if ! [[ -f /etc ]]
then
echo not file
fi

What do you get? Is the same error?

Solaris and HP-UX have different ksh versions.

The normal way of writing the test is:

if  [[ ! -d "$PVT_SRCLOC" ]]

if  [[ -n "$PVT_OPT_S" -o  -n  "$PVT_OPT_G" ]]
