The up and down keys need to get the command history is not working in
IRB.

They produce ^[[A, ^[[B, ^[[C etc. I am connecting over PuTTY to Fedora
6and I wonder whether the problem is in IRB.

If after logging in to the Fedora 6 account, I login to my dreamhost
account and run IRB the keys work fine. I compiled the ruby with
readline and I suspect that something didn't go right.

Is there some way of checking it?
