Subject Re: [CLI] noob: why command history on linux doesn work, on windows does
Date Sat, 28 Oct 2006 21:18:33 GMT

no i use bash, I've verified , with banshee in the start script and all, but
when I press arrow up ig only get ^[[A on the command line. tried on two not
customized debian servers, should <CRTL>+R also work? only Ctrl+j for new
line worked. on the "real" shell everything its fine. 
how do you interface to the shell from java? is there an interface in j2se
or how its done?
