NetBSD's /bin/sh has it - you can certainly get bash or tcsh if you
want, but in the mean time sh is worth a try.  It's designed to meet
POSIX shell specs, if that means anything to you.

If it's not already on, you can turn on "emacs" mode with "set -o emacs".
That gives you ^P, ^N, ^B, ^F etc. as in classic emacs.  I don't recall
that the arrow keys work.  I use vi mode ("set -o vi"), where arrow keys
are like training wheels on a Guerciotti.  So far as I know there is no
command completion in either mode, but I believe there is file completion.
