Why do the MKS Toolkit shells not find my scripts in the current directory?

As in UNIX, when you try to run a file, the shell will search directories listed in the PATH environment variable for a file of that name. It will not look in the current directory unless you have a ., representing the current directory, in your PATH.



If you do not want to add a dot to your path then you can still run your scripts without specifying the full path using this syntax: ./script.ksh.
