How to make command history persistent?
Posts: n/a

My question is:
Is there an easy mean to make Python "command history"
persistent across interpreter invokations?

In the case the question above is not clear, I rephrase
it below verbosely...
When I work from the Python prompt, I enjoy features
like command line editing and searching/recalling
previous lines of code from the history.
(This is similar to working from a Unix shell prompt.)
But I would like, in addition, be able to keep the history
from one session to another (when I quit Python, the history
is lost, but I would like to retrieve it each time In
invoke again Python interactively).

If using unix, you should have readline available.
See the tutotial appendix:-

Great! The indicated "history save" works!
