command history in the interpreter?

hello


i had python1.52 in linux/mandrake7. when i pressed the uparrow at the
console i could access the command history, so to speak. just like in
bash.

now i use slackware7. i installed both python1.52 and python1.6 (the
former replacing the latter). it didn't work in none of them.
all of the arrowkeys type things like ^[[C  ^[[D and such.

the python interpreter in win98 (1.52 and 1.6) also don't give me the
history function.

anyone who has an idea on how to make that work again?
it's so awkward now that i can't even edit the txt without deleting it
(backspace).

is that feature hidden somewhere in the interpreter, or did mandrake
somehow add it themselves?

    thanks in adv. / alex
