Subject [jira] [Resolved] (CASSANDRA-7577) cqlsh: CTRL-R history search not working on OSX
Date Thu, 14 Aug 2014 18:46:12 GMT


Robert Stupp resolved CASSANDRA-7577.

    Resolution: Not a Problem

According to

"Mac OS X, do not ship with GNU readline installed. The readline extension module in the standard
library of Mac "system" Python uses NetBSD's editline (libedit) library instead, which is
a readline replacement with a less restrictive software license."

So, you can install it with the command:

sudo easy_install readline

> _recursive-history-search_ via ctrl-R does not work in cqlsh. The history itself works
via cursor up/down.
> It works on Linux (and I guess on Windows with cygwin) but not on my Mac.
