Subject Re: [CLI] noob: why command history on linux doesn work, on windows does
Date Sat, 28 Oct 2006 18:32:03 GMT

Unless I misunderstand the question -- the answer is [c].  Command line 
history on Linux is a feature of the shell you are using.  If you are 
using the (pretty universal) bash shell then up-arrow does indeed work 
just as in Windows.  If you have another shell then you will need to read 
the man pages.

On my machine "echo $SHELL" prints "/bin/bash"
