in reply to Perl-based command line history?

Check out Term::ReadLine.

You should be able to steal from the sample code quite easily.

Note: I don't know why, but on my setup (RH9.0, Perl 5.6.1) I can press UP once to get to the previous line but have to press UP two more times to get to the one before that. Everything else works like a charm.

    *sigh* Is that all?!? Why's everything in perl have to be so simple?!? :)

    esh++ many thanks!

    Possible trap for future readers (who are probably brighter than i): you have to also have installed Term::ReadLine::Perl or, preferably, Term::ReadLine::Gnu (which in turn, needs the gnu readline library ).

    my JAPH: print"Just another Perl hacker\n"; # ^ look, no space! pretty tricky hey?
