The subject line is sprcific "compiling sqlite", however, unless you knoew to ask the question you might not ask it... But here is a workaround that seems to work nicely... This is a problem in OpenBSD. install the `rlwrap` package if not already installed. in the `.profile` or `.bashrc` add this line assuming that ``` alias sqlite3="rlwrap -c sqlite3" ``` and then log back in or run the command manually.
