in thread CPAN shell command formatting

Thank you for this. In both I have Term::ReadLine (1.14) and Term::ReadLine::Perl (1.0303).
A difference is that I have Term::ReadLine::Gnu installed where I have plain characters but NOT in the machine where I see bold command characters. I will explore what may be behind this and eventually report back.
Thank you monks!

This was also pointed out yesterday by Rolf, see above.

    Well, I may have found the answer. Obviously reading the documentation :-)

    As pointed out by Rolf above (Re^3: CPAN shell command formatting), Term::ReadLine::Gnu and Term::ReadLine::Perl are possibly not entirely compatible. After exporting the variable:
    export "PERL_RL=Perl o=1"
    Where "o=1" stands for ornaments are activated, which was also the setting in o conf. Things look as I desired now.

    Thank you everyone for the kind help!
      I somehow remember having the same discussion about problematic highlighting and the Perl debugger, and it was also the Term::ReadLine backend to be blamed.

      Unfortunately I can't find it again, so I replied to you to make it searchable for others having the same problem, but with the debugger. :)

      Cheers Rolf
