16<para><filename>Inputrc</filename> deals with the mapping of the keyboard for
17certain situations. This file is the start-up file used by
18<application>readline</application>, the input related library used by
19<application>bash</application> and most other shells.</para>
20
21<para>For more information see <command>info bash</command>&mdash;<emphasis
22role="strong">Node: Readline Init</emphasis> file as well as
23<command>info readline</command>. There is a lot that can be done with this
24one rc file.</para>
25
26<para>Global values are set in <filename>/etc/inputrc</filename>.
27Personal user values are set in <filename>~/.inputrc</filename>. The
28<filename>~/.inputrc</filename> file will override the global settings
29file. A later page sets up <application>Bash</application> to use
30<filename>/etc/inputrc</filename> if there is no
31<filename>.inputrc</filename> for a user when
32<filename>/etc/profile</filename> is read (usually at login). If you
33want your system to use both, or don't want <emphasis>global</emphasis>
34keyboard handling, it is a good idea to place a default
35<filename>.inputrc</filename> into the <filename>/etc/skel</filename>
36directory for use with new users.</para>

38<para>
39Below is a base <filename>/etc/inputrc</filename> along with
40comments to explain what the various options do. Note that comments
41can <emphasis>not</emphasis> be on the same line as commands.
42</para>
43
44<para>If you will create an <filename>.inputrc</filename> in
45<filename>/etc/skel</filename> using the command below, change the
46command's output to <filename>/etc/skel/.inputrc</filename> and be
47sure to check/set permissions afterward. Then you can just copy that
48file to <filename>/etc/inputrc</filename> and the home directory
49of any user already existing in the system, including root, that needs
50a private version of the file. Be sure to use the <option>-p</option> parameter
51of <command>cp</command> to maintain permissions and be sure to change owner and group
52appropriately.
