Description

if i write something in the inputline, then press the down arrow key, the text i wrote is gone. i would like to have a behaviour like in bash.
so the last written line should be last in the buffer, if i repeat pressing the down arrow, it should stay at the last inputline state, not an empty line.

Since this is still being discussed, i'll link to my patches and will probably upload a final one here if it ever get's accepted. My favorite version is the one that behaves kindof like irssi:

It saves everything you type into a new line and hit key_up/key_down or return afterwards.
History got a maximum size of 1000 entries for now. This could be made configurable but i guess it's ok unitl (if ever) there's a search function for the history. Probably no one will search 1000 lines by hand just to be "faster" than typing the same thing again..

#2 Updated by EgS almost 12 years ago

it works now the irssi way: key down clears input line and puts content into history
