Recently, I want to add some keybindings for vi mode's vi-insert submode, I add the following lines into ~/.inputrc file:
    set editing-mode vi
    set keymap vi-insert
    "\C-A" :  beginning-of-line
    "\C-B" :  backward-char
    "\C-F" :  forward-char
    "\C-E" :  end-of-line
    ... ...

In fact, I put almost all the emacs key bindings into vi-insert submode, since the default key bingdings of readline for vi-insert submode is too weak. By this way, I want to get the benefits from the two world. But it does not work, I have searched the web, but it is very difficult to find useful resource about vi mode in readline.

It works fine when I try it.  How exactly does it `not work'?

Hi, Chet
  Thanks for your reply.
  Here is my .inputrc file:
#"\e[3~": delete-char
# this is actually equivalent to "\C-?": delete-char

# VT
"\e[1~": beginning-of-line
"\e[4~": end-of-line

# kvt

# rxvt and konsole (i.e. the KDE-app...)

set meta-flag on
set convert-meta off
set output-meta on
# ignore case while completing
set completion-ignore-case on

# shut off the bell
set bell-style none

set editing-mode vi

set visible-stats on

set keymap vi-insert
"\C-A" : beginning-of-line
"\C-B" : backward-char
"\C-E" : end-of-line
"\C-F" : forward-char

After adding the keybindings, I open a new terminal(gnome Terminal 2.10.0),
input some text and press Ctrl+B, it does not work.

Am I doing something wrong?
