As Larry explained, this is something different.

However, as I've come to discover after much pain, if you're already
using Cygwin, there isn't much point to installing pdksh.  It's easy
enough to create a symlink from "/usr/bin/ksh.exe" to
"/usr/bin/bash.exe".  Poof.  You have Korn shell.  As far as I can
tell, Bash can substitute for Korn shell in every area I'm familiar
