keypad operation


We use the up arrow button for moving through previous commands on the command prompt. can anybody tell me how to block that option if I want and again to get it back.

Thanks in advance,

my idea is to do

$ export HISTSIZE=0

this will do the task. to reset this, again set HISTSIZE to its original value.
