Subject:Command Line Editing Mode
View as plain text  

Using the mysql CLI, I have discovered that 

ESC-Return Return

will put the CLI editor in to 'vi' mode, and allow me to use my 'normal' ksh
editing keys, available in ksh after "set -o vi".

Because I am more familiar with the vi editing keys, and they are more
powerful than the standard MySQL CLI keys (including the ability to search
through the history), I would prefer to use these all the time without
having to remember the Esc Return Return sequence. Is there a way of doing
this, or is this an un-documented feature?
