IIUC, this is a feature request for different default setting for readline (on Windows only?).

Changing tags accordingly.

Readline works for me.

Tue 03 May 2022 01:25:31 AM UTC, original submission:  

I think it should be very easy for the genuine OCTAVE team to develop a line editor for the command window so that it become very similar to MATLAB's line editor.

- Escape should clear the entire line.
- Selection, copy, and paste should work properly (it is now malfunctioning).
- Replace mode does not work at all. 


- When "[A" or "[C" appears (for any reason, e.g. when Esc is used), it hangs, and does nothing.




(Note: upload size limit is set to 16384 kB, after insertion of the required escape characters.)
