Issue #8029 has been updated by artagnon (Ramkumar Ramachandra).


I'm sorry, but I seem to have misunderstood the non-incremental-reverse-search-history and non-incremental-forward-search-history functions of readline.  I expected it to work like in ZSH (which uses zle, not readline).

Bug #8029: M-p and M-n don't work in irb

irb is supposed to use readline and M-a, M-e are bound to beginning-of-line and end-of-line respectively.  However, M-p and M-n don't have the same effect as up-arrow and down-arrow.  Why is this?
