I wonder why that works for you and not for me.

It works for me, too - and I'm using the cmd.exe shell.

There was a recent report of a similar situation with the perldl shell, too. A guy using windows found that the arrow keys wouldn't work for him in the perldl shell. Like you, my first thought was that he wasn't running the cmd.exe shell .... but he was. (That's as far as we got.)

I haven't a clue what could be causing the difference in behaviour. For me, it's the same behaviour on 2000, XP and Vista (SP1). The arrow keys work as expected.

Cheers,
Rob

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
