No keyboard control in the R terminal

Olson Roman
Dear R Users,

There is no R keyboard control in my R terminal. Specifically, I can not use the up and down arrows, use autocomplete, or “backspace” to delete. I am using R 3.3.3 on
Linux <snip> 2.6.18-164.el5 #1 SMP Thu Sep 3 03:28:30 EDT 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Is this an R bug?

Best,
-R

Re: No keyboard control in the R terminal

Unlikely. My guess is you compiled it yourself without having readline development support installed where the configure script could find it.
