HowTo – AIX – Emulate BASH Keystrokes

April 16th, 2014 No comments

If you are looking for an easy way to emulate BASH up / down arrow behavior as well as TAB completion of filenames and directories then this might be a solution for you:

  1. Change your default shell to ksh93 using the “chsh” command and select “/usr/bin/ksh93
  2. Edit you “.profile” file and add the following line:

    export ENV=$HOME/.kshrc

  3. Copy the contents of THIS FILE to $HOME/.kshrc
