The ksh file extension is related to the KornShell programming language was designed and developed by David G. Korn at AT&T Bell Laboratories.

It is an interactive command language that provides access to the UNIX system and to many other systems, on the many different computers and workstations on which it is implemented.

The KornShell language is high-level programming language for writing applications.

ksh has the best features of both, plus many new features of its own. Thus ksh can do much to enhance your productivity and the quality of your work, both in interacting with the system, and in programming. ksh programs are easier to write, and are more concise and readable than programs written in a lower level language such as C.

The ksh file stores shell script written in KornShell programming language.
