inputrc and bash_history
Mon Nov 1 12:47:00 GMT 1999
i'm using windows nt. i just got the b20 from the site day before yesterday
and can't get bash to read my inputrc or my bash_history. after looking at
the archives of the email list i found that the files have to be in unix
format. i converted my bash_history to unix format (opened it up in an
editor and saved as 'unix' format) and restarted bash to find it worked.
however, bash rewrites it upon exit with extra ^M's in there.
i can't get my inputrc to be read no matter what i do, unix format or
anything else. the files are definitely where they're supposed to be; i
even set the INPUTRC and HISTFILE environment variables.
any suggestions? i like bash and will continue to use it, but it would be
nicer if i could get this stuff to work.
thank you in advance!

Would you care for a drink? I mean, if it were, like,
disabled and you had to look after it?
