## Initial settings for ksh history, prompt and aliases

Out of the box, OpenBSD doesn’t come with a history file set, so when you logoff your history for that session is lost. Here’s how I set the history file and a few favourite aliases. While we’re at it we might as well set the prompt at the same time.

echo export ENV="$HOME/.kshrc" >> .profile echo export PS1='\u@\h:\w\$ ' >> .profile


Put the following in .kshrc

HISTFILE="\$HOME/.ksh_history"
HISTSIZE=5000
HISTCONTROL=ignoredups:ignorespace
alias la="ls -la"
alias h=history
alias doas="doas "
