Bash Command History Scroll Back Problem with Multi-line Commands
Thu Jun 23 19:09:00 GMT 2005
Yup, thanks guys, I found out the exact source is the prompt setting:
This does not work: export PS1="\e[32m\w$\e[0m "
This works fine: export PS1="\w$ "
I inherited this bashrc, so the first settings are hieroglyphics to me.
Seeing as I don't care much about colour anyway, I'll just remove it.
Thanks so much!
