Description Derek Tattersall 2001-08-07 00:44:49 UTC
Description of Problem:
ash is not compiled with history, so "fc" commands don't work.
command line editing, arrow keys fail, and edit modes fail.  In emacs mode
^A doesn't got start of line.  This is all in console mode, non X.

How Reproducible:
Happens whenever I execute ash -E -i

Steps to Reproduce:
1. ash -E -i or ash -V -i (VI mode)
2. enter a long command line
3. try ^A to go to line start, ^K to kill the line

Actual Results:

Expected Results:
Cursor movement, line erase

Additional Information:
Under screen, backspace doesn't work either.

Comment 1 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-12-06 22:26:41 UTC
It's a simple, small shell for scripts, bootdisks etc. I don't want to add
anything increasing the size... if you want a fully featured shell, you should
use bash or zsh
