Version: Keywords:


Using ghci-6.10.1, when Test.hs is run under ghci-6.10.1, fancy line editing is not used.

The problem does not occur in ghci-6.8.1 or with ghci-haskeline.

The terminfo backend is used, and it appears to be a buffering problem...very strange.

This issue is caused by a ghci bug:


Currently the POSIX backend only sets stdin to NoBuffering if it's not already set. We can work around this by always setting NoBuffering.
