Command completion in ksh is done with Esc Esc (hitting the escape key
twice). Although I've never been successful at getting this to work on
my system at work (AIX 3.2.5), I read that's the key sequence for
My question is, can that be changed to the Tab key and if so how, in
ksh? Command completion in tcsh and bash use the Tab key. The Tab key is
SO MUCH MORE convenient a key for command completion.
Another question... about previous command retrieval. bash and tcsh use
the UP and DOWN arrow keys for command retrieval. ksh uses Esc-k & Esc-j
respectively. UP & DOWN are MUCH BETTER choices. Can this be changed in
ksh and how?
Any guidance would be appreciated. I like the ksh for it's better (I
think so) scripting/programming features but the way it implements
command/path completion and previous command retrieval is really
annoying me. So much time can be saved with the use of Tab and UP,DOWN
