Thanks to all for so many replies.  I like the sound of the bind keys 
option.  I use bash, but I'm sure there will be an equivalent.  Isn't 
bash meant to be the mecca of shells?

Anyway, my point is more about how I am limited to putting parameters in 
a certain place only on the command line.  Eg:

"ls -al <mega_long_path>"  would work


"ls <mega_long_path> -al"  does not work.

Is it a FreeBSD thing or a general configuration thing?

Steve :)
