Depends what comes first in the PATH. {grin}

I find that the minimal readline support on Windows is useful enough that having it on doesn't bother me too much.

      I don't get history between cpan shell sessions, but I can hit the up-arrow to get previous lines. Crippled versus readline on *nix, but handy on occasion.

        Hm. I wonder why that works for you and not for me.

        Could it be that you use a *nix shell clone (rather than cmd.exe), under windows that maps the arrow keys for you?
