Description Paulo Andrade 2012-07-02 19:39:55 EDT
Some time ago I did exchange several emails with clisp developers to have a way to disable readline and work with pexpect (that allocates a pseudo tty) that sagemath uses to talk to maxima. Most of the discussion can be seen at http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?thread_name=4B8D57D2.4080002%40gnu.org&forum_name=clisp-devel

  I will try to open a related bug report to upstream maxima, as maxima --help tells about the --disable-readline option, but it does nothing if using clisp as lisp backend.

  I use a variant (just rediffed it in fedora) of the attached patch in Mandriva.
