Can't navigate with arrows in the console

Why do I get these symbols in the console when I use the arrows to navigate?

^[[D^[[A^[[C^[[B (corresponds to left, up, right, down)

This is a normal behavior for Replit. The console is text-only and arrows would be a form of interaction which it does not allow. I believe this is normal for Linux terminals.


Is there anyway to modify this? In terminals on Mac/windows, you can move the curser with the arrow keys.

I don’t think so. I am unable to do this on my Linux computer or on Replit.

Ok I’ll just have to pay careful attention to my console typing then :wink:
