Hi,

when I start ERL in Windows I see:
   Eshell V5.5.5  (abort with ^G)
   1>
but using ctrl+g won't bring up the jcl prompt (as suggested in the book
"Programming Erlang" on page 21).
I read some postings on the web discussing the dangers of ctrl+g

Questions:
   1. is the disabling of ctrl+g (to invoke jcl prompt) intentional?
   2. can it be enabled?

BTW: it does work in WERL

TIA,
   Arie
