Re: [vox-tech] readline questions (in bash)



hi jay,

hmmm.  then i'm stumped.   it works great for me (debian testing).  the
only other help i can think of is my /etc/inputrc:


# /etc/inputrc - global inputrc for libreadline
# See readline(3readline) and `info rluserman' for more information.

# Be 8 bit clean.
set input-meta on
set output-meta on

# set show-all-if-ambiguous on
set bell-style visible
set visible-stats on

# To allow the use of 8bit-characters like the german umlauts, comment out
# the line below. However this makes the meta key not work as a meta key,
# which is annoying to those which don't need to type in 8-bit characters.

# set convert-meta off

$if term=xterm
"\e[5;5~":  history-search-backward
"\e[6;5~":  history-search-forward
$endif
"\e[C":     forward-char
"\e[D":     backward-char
"\e[A":     previous-history
"\e[B":     next-history


if it still doesn't work for you, then i'm stumped.  readline is still
somewhat of a black box for me.  someday i'll get around to mastering
it.  sorry.   :(
