I'm trying to make the UP arrow to get previous command in Korn Shell but I can't find .kshrc file in my $HOME directory. I know it is hidden but even ls -al doesn't show it. What should I do?

You probably don't have one. Just make your own using touch or an editor. – squiguy May 23 '13 at 20:41

If .kshrc does not exist just create one.

.kshrc is a text file. Its name is .kshrc

One way to create it is open up your favourite text editor and save a file to your home directory called .kshrc
