There are so many different types of terminals that the up/down keys are
not supported on many of them.  Since you do have up/down keys at a shell
prompt, then you are probably running the korn shell; no other shells
will do this.  The up/down keys will not work in isql, but you can type
at a 1> prompt the word vi to bring back your previous command into a vi
buffer.  If you want to re-issue the same command, save the vi buffer,
you will return to the isql prompt and type go.

isql doesn't have the capability you are seeking.  Get sqsh
(see .sig for FAQ) and compile it and you'll be dancing.

tcsh does.

 ISQL environment configuration

We have recently moved our SQL servers from VMS to Dec Unix.  We are
having what I suspect is a Unix terminal setup problem, but being Unix
illiterate, we don't know what needs to be done.

When using ISQL (on VMS) we could use the up/down arrows keys to recall
commands, and the backspace key to backspace.  These don't appear to
work the same on Dec Unix.  However, they do work correctly at the
shell prompt.  What we experience within ISQL is that the up/down arrow
keys move the cursor up and down within our Reflections window, while
the backspace key appears to do nothing.

Any ideas on what needs to be configured to make these keys function
the same as at the shell prompt.

TIA.

        I gotta lay off the qualudes man. I'd swear blind that my tcsh
        does it.
