Arrow keys binding in AIX v5.3 - how?

Would somebody advise how arrow keys could be binded in AIX v5.3?

I could not find reasonable information online related to AIX.

I've meat advises to define:
Code:
alias __A=$'\020'  # or the same: alias __A=$(echo "\020")
alias __B=$'\016'
alias __C=$'\006'
alias __D=$'\002'

But it does not work.

I know it should work for 'emacs' command editor; so 'set -o emacs' could be active.

Does not work.

I know some useful keystrokes in vi-command-editing mode (having 'set -o vi'), but could not find a way to assign them to arrow key.
In vi it is possible with :map and :map!; but how to set it for shell command editing?

I am sure it is doable, but how?

OK, I have error in spelling the 'set -o emacs', but you see it in my post ...
So, what is the point of your reply? Just to have it replyed?
