[vox-tech] avoiding recursive readline commands in .inputrc



hi all,

in bash, i'd like to map the uparrow key to "escape uparrow".  the trouble is
that there doesn't seem to be a way to make readline avoid the infinite
recursion that results.  specifically, i'm trying to do:

$if bash
"OA": "OA"
$endif

why?  because i like using vi style editing in bash, but i hate the fact that
i have to press escape before the uparrow starts showing command history.

pete
