Sample Init File

Here is an example of an INPUTRC file.  This illustrates key binding,
variable assignment, and conditional syntax.
     # This file controls the behaviour of line input editing for
     # programs that use the GNU Readline library.  Existing
     # programs include FTP, Bash, and GDB.
     #
     # You can re-read the inputrc file with C-x C-r.
     # Lines beginning with '#' are comments.
     #
     # First, include any systemwide bindings and variable
     # assignments from /etc/Inputrc
     $include /etc/Inputrc
     #
     # Set various bindings for emacs mode.
