If I put the line "set bell-style none" in my

The environment variable "INPUTRC" is unset.
So I don't believe readline reads /etc/inputrc.
How do I get readline to read /etc/inputrc ?
Thanks in advance
There is a bug in /etc/inputrc. On the line that reads "set bell-style
none", there is a hidden space after the word "none". That is causing
readline to ignore that command.
Evidently, readline is not forgiving of extra whitespace.
