ksh commands in bash

I am new to bash & it is ok so far.

I like using "!" to repeat commands.

I also liked the ksh "r" to repeat commands.

How can I set up bash to use "r" to repeat commands:


in ksh - if my last "l" command was ls -l

then r l would repeat it.

in bash I must use !l

r l is easier to hit than !l
