Ksh File Completion using TAB instead of ESC \

I would like to change the default ESC \ for file file completion to be TAB instead.  How would I do that?

ksh does NOT have such feature!

ksh can complete pathnames with a little bit more complicated sequence.

set -o vi        # set ksh input editor = vi
you can put this statement in your .profile file to get it automatically executed

type a partial pathname
press <esc> to go in command mode
press =   to get a list of pathnames that complete your partial pathname OR
press *    to expand your partial pathname to the complete list of completing pathnames

and you can do "vi" style commandline search for command history.

IF you want TAB completion, use tcsh shell.
