Astro inputrc/esc-k doesn't work
When my account was setup on Astro the edit-mode (set -o vi) did not work at all. I emailed support and received a reply suggesting I read the man pages and that it worked just fine for him.
Looking at the server settings my own dang self since the support tech wouldn't do it I discovered the following:
1. The environmental variable INPUTRC is set to /etc/inputrc so the home directory copy is not read.
2. vi-movement-mode is not bound to any key. Therefore: no vi movement mode.
My solution was as follows:
Add the following two lines to .bash_profile
I changed my .inputrc to the following
Changing the first line to
is not recommended as very bad things would occur. :-)
