You're welcome! I was surprised to find those in the source. Glad to have documented them and even happier to hear that it's news to others.

I updated (downgraded?) it to http. I'm also seeing that the kornshell logo is intermittently broken. Not quite sure the best way to go about fixing that. Maybe commit copies? Use something like archive.org? Sounds like a problem for someone else (e.g. future me). I'm out of time for tonight.

Good call. That example was wonky. I've given a different one. Not sure it's better, though. I find the shebang behavior tricky to demo in a simple way.

Good catch! Since arrays are only defined in ob-shell using bash, I've updated that example to use bash. Otherwise, I've removed the exports.

I appreciate these clarifications. Admittedly, I'm not great with shell scripting. Your recommendations appear sound to me and I've tried to incorporate them.
The updates have been made and are pushed. Thanks for your feedback!
