This didn't work with my bash at home, but does work with the one at work.

This works in both bash.  Thank you VERY MUCH!  It doesn't actually
mean that I will abandon tcsh as my interactive shell, but will mean
that in those cases where I find myself in a bash life will be a lot
less miserable (not so much because ESC-p is a must, but because it is
hardcoded into my fingers and causes grief everytime I press it.

I actually tried this before, but got the syntax wrong, using "M-p"
instead of "\ep" --- which, presumably, makes this post on topic again
:-)

THANKS

Sven
