No, it's actually the file created by fc(1) to edit the bash history.

It uses the FCEDIT env variable to launch the editor it going to use.

So I'd like to set it to:

export FCEDIT="emacs -f sh-mode"

so that fc(1) uses emacs as editor in sh-mode directly.

Note that the name of the temporary file is *appended* to what you
specified in FCEDIT.
