Command line editing in Mma

Hi MathGroupers,

this might be of interest to those of you running Mathematica (Mma) on
UNIX boxes without a notebook or GNU emacs front-end.

I have recently stumbled by chance over a UNIX tool called "fep", the
general purpose Front End Processor. "fep" adds a history mechanism a'
la csh and emacs/vi like command line editing capabilities to line
oriented UNIX commands. I've tried "fep" on Mma 1.2 and 2.0 and it
worked fine making the usage of standard UNIX Mma *a lot* more
convenient.

Personally I don't see "fep" as a competitor to the math-mode of GNU
emacs but as a valuable alternative.

For the nearest ftp-site of "fep" I've simply asked the well known
"archie" ftp-lookup server.

Regards,
        MARKUS
