[erlang-questions] Arrow keys in erl started by cygwin mintty terminal

Thanks. Looks like it solves the problem with up/down keys but tab
command completion still doesn't work.
Looks like there's another alternative to rlwrap called conin that
addresses the same thing
it also doesn't heal the tab issue. Maybe I'll play with conin later to
add that support, as it seems quite simple...
