sudo on AIX 5.2 ML4

Does anybody know if AIX supports the use of sudo? I have an 5.2 ML4 version on a box.

Also, where would I get sudo?

Thanks in advance.

AIX is IBM's UNIX Platform. Hmmm... searching LQ AIX forum for "sudo" gets this thread ... so than answer would appear to be "yes". Have you tried looking it (sudo) up?
