functionality of the command line interpreter.
There is no need for DOSKEY in FreeDOS, which has such
features built into the command interpreter.

The external DOSKEY utility had been incorporated into FreeCOM.
Use cursor UP, and DOWN keys to recall the history and HISTORY to display
it. Use cursor LEFT, and Right and the END and HOME keys to navigate
within the command line and toggle INSERT between overstrike and insert
mode. Use the TAB key to complete the current word as filename; use it
twice to show all matching files.
DOSKEY is a command internal to command.com and needs no other file
in order to work.
- none - simply test the described keys.
