in thread CPAN and readline on windows

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

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.

Cheers,
Rob

    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 :-)

        I have Home Premium SP1 rather than Business, but that's unlikely the cause. The only other thing that comes to mind is that I have it set up with UK keyboard & codespages etc. Are you using the default US setup?
