I need help now. I installed R in my Solaris 5.8 box. But two things I am
missing comparing to my old Splus.

1. I used to invoke a command edit Splus by type "Splus -e". So I can surfer
in Splus like ksh environment. Can I do the same in R?
2. I used BSD version of R, which I can use "up" key to call back last
command. But in Sun, I can't make it happened. I reinstalled the readline
from GNU, hoping it help. But it didn't.

Please help me, if anyone know the answer or workaround on above issues.
