The original version of ksh I received with my Microport 3.0e system
did not support emacs-style editing.  I believe that it has to be
enabled in the source at compilation time.  The replacement ksh
executable I obtained from the Microport BBS disks does support
emacs-style command line editing.  I've been using it since June with
no problems.
