Oracle Tips by Burleson 

Standard command history

It is very important to use a common set of UNIX command history and command editing keystrokes. By adding the following command to your .profile, you instruct UNIX to use the vi command editor from your UNIX prompt

# Keyboard commands
stty erase ^?
set -o vi
The set –o vi command enables the following UNIX keystrokes for quickly locating and re-executing UNIX commands:
* <esc> k – Page through previous commands
* <esc> \ - Search the command history for a command with a string
* <esc> \ - automatic command completion for file names

Having a common editor between Oracle servers ensures the common look-and-feel regardless of the current Oracle server.

The above is an excerpt from the "Oracle9i UNIX Administration Handbook" by Oracle press, authored by Donald K. Burleson.
