.editrc Tidbit for
The only thing that I lost in the transition between readline
in GHC 6.8 and editline
in GHC 6.10 was backwards history search in
ghci bound to
^R. I use that particular feature quite a bit, so that
had a big negative impact on my productivity.
Here's how to get it back. Create a file in your home directory
.editrc with the following contents:
edit on bind ^R em-inc-search-prev
The analogous setting for forward search (
em-inc-search-next) doesn't work for some reason, but that's
not one that I'm going to miss.
