Re: readline history doesn't work on FreeBSD

If you want to keep the history between gp session, you need to set

This works.

My question is why doesn't pari default to having the history "on"? After a while users would forget that this custom action is needed, and as a result most would never use the history feature, and some eventually would ask this question again.

This is a natural expectation to have history, rather than not have it.
