Hi, Is there an easy way to add option such as "set -o emacs" to Linux based command console so I can have history of commands and be able to edit them? Or is this a complicated and painful thing to do?

I''m not sure what you mean by "set -o emacs" but if you''re after a command history in your linux shell, then you should be using the bash (Bourne Again SHell). It''s pretty much the standard shell these days.

I''m working on a text based command console(like a simple shell) and want to add command history and editing capability to it, like in regular shell such as bash. Many *nix apps allow setting "-o" options (like dbx) which I find very convenient.
