in thread CPAN and readline on windows

Very strange! I even created a new user account and tried it there--just in case I've applied some configuration to my cmd sessions that could be influencing the problem--but it makes no difference.

None of the navigation keys--left/right/up/down/home/end--appear to doing anything at all.

No matter. I now know how to disable it, and that's preferable for me. I like my control keys to serve their designated functions anyway.

    Only thing I can think of is that it might be something to do with your selected cmd.exe options. In my "Edit Options" I have "QuickEdit Mode" and "Insert Mode" selected. And for "Command History" I have chosen a "Buffer Size" of 50, with "Number of Buffers" set to 5.

      I use a larger and more buffers, but otherwise the same. I tried adjusting them to your settings for a session, and it made no difference.

      I'm running Vista 64, but I doubt that is an influence. And AS 5.10 64-bit which might be.

        I have the same - Vista 64 (Business, SP1) and AS 5.10 64-bit (build 1004). Looks like this will remain unsolved for a little longer yet :-)
