command-line editing

I think that there is some way to make the TCSH command-line act like
the VI line editor. Is there anyway to make the BASH command-line
behave the same way as VI? If so how do I go about it?

1. A new command-line editing library like readline

This announces the alpha release of a new interactive command-line
editing library called tecla. This library fills a similar role to the
GNU readline library, but is smaller, designed with optional
reentrancy in mind, and comes under a less restrictive free
license. Like readline, it provides interactive command-line editing,
file-completion, command-line history recall and editing, and a
customizable word completion mechanism. The default key bindings are
designed to mimic most of the key-bindings of tcsh.

For further information, please see the following URL:

The library has been tested under Solaris and Linux, so if you compile
it on a different system, please tell me how this goes.
