Package: pdksh
Version: 5.2.14-25
Severity: wishlist
I am using the pdksh shell at the command line. When my
cursor reaches the end of the screen, instead of moving down to the beginning of the line, a "jump" occurs, so that the first part of the command line is lost from view, and I can see only the tail end of what I had typed. This is really annoying.

We need an option to disable this behaviour, causing the cursor to moves down a line and back to the left ("CRLF" style), like it does
with most other shells.

while GNU bash-style command line editing (multiline) had been on the
upstream wishlist for a while, this feature request cannot be portably
implemented because it would need much more terminal knowledge, and
thus linking against things like libtermcap or curses.

guy. But he's always right! In every fsckin' situation, he's right. Even
with his deeply perverted taste in software and borked ambition towards
broken OSes - in the end, he's damn right about it :(! […] works in mksh
