i tried it on my RS/6Ks w/ ksh.
it seems to work on AIX 3.5.5.[01] but they fixed it on 4.1.4.

  That reminds me of a similar "little-known feature" on SunOS and
Solaris, where /bin/sh interprets '^' as a synonym for '|' :

$ sh -c 'echo blah ^ cat'

This archaic compatibility feature is not only of SunOS/Solaris but also
of Ultrix4.3A (both sh and sh5) and HP-UX 9.05.  Ksh, pdksh and /bin/posix/sh
do not support this.
