Description Tom Tromey 2008-03-01 17:47:25 UTC
jline has emacs-like bindings but is missing some that I use regularly.

M-f and M-b don't work.  In fact any M- binding seems to just insert
the meta-less character (e.g., M-f inserts "f").
C-t does not work.

Those are just the ones I use often enough to notice.
I'm sure more are missing.

FWIW the gold standard here is GNU readline, which does nearly
everything right from a user's POV.

Block jline tracker bug.
Comment 2 Andrew Cagney 2008-04-07 15:16:14 UTC
A suggestion is to switch to the bindings used by eclipse (readline with libedit).
