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

  • how can I create it? what type of file is it? – CuriousGuy May 23 '13 at 20:42
  • @CuriousGuy see edit. But its just a text file. – FDinoff May 23 '13 at 20:48

You can create it in your home folder. in terminal , go to your home folder and type following command
