I am configuring ksh88 on AIX 5.3L and came across a few lines that are supposed to enable the arrow keys for command history navigation.
alias __A=$(print -n "\020") alias __B=$(print -n "\016") alias __C=$(print -n "\006") alias __D=$(print -n "\002")
What I want to know is what do the leading underscores indicate? The reason that I am asking is that I need to, on login, conditionally remap function keys based on some criteria. I am wondering if this is an avenue that I can and should pursue.
