How do I set these variables (HISTFILE and HISTSIZE) in the .profile (using ksh). Same way for both HP and Solaris? What about for Linux?

Solaris and Linux can use export on the same line
export HISTFILE=$HOME/.sh_history

Open in new window

I seem to recall HPUX needs it set then exported
HISTFILE=$HOME/.sh_history; export VARIABLE

Open in new window
