Where ksh can load aliases from?

  • Checked /etc/profile, ~/.profile - nothing
  • There is no ~/.kshrc.
  • Tried: $ grep -r 'alias BADALIAS' /etc - also nothing

Ok, found it...

The /etc/profile has a call to another script buried in conditions:

test -d $SITE -a -d $SITE/$VER -a -e $SITE/$VER/site_config && . $SITE/$VER/site_config

which in turn opens a text file with key=value pairs and makes aliases from this list. And that list has a bad pair...

Our admins are such strange people...
