Hi Nandini,

That particular post is pretty clear on what you need to do but here is a starting point.

You will want to look for instances where you are executing commands like this in your .profile or .kshrc:
Code:
stty -o vi or stty erase ^H

and add a test like this:
Code:
if [[ $- = *i* ]]
then
    stty -o vi
    stty erase ^H
fi

If you're new to scripting and you still struggle with this example then you're going to need to post your .profile and .kshrc as mahendramahendr requested for further help.
