Oracle should NOT be using bash to install their product, at least not without telling you that you need to install it.

Instead they should be using the Posix shell.

HP-UX does NOT include the bash shell by default.  The default shell for HP-UX is /usr/bin/sh, also known as the POSIX shell.


If Oracle is requiring BASH for installation, then this is just another example of them trying to sabotage their HP-UX customers!
