Spark-shell readline support


I use Apache Spark 1.2.1 and I am unable to use readline command editing in spark-shell. It seems like it ignores all the settings I have in my ~/.inputrc file. I confirm readline works without problems in pyspark.

Do you happen to know how I can configure spark-shell to take advantage of readline library?

If you are not familiar with readline library and its functionality it is available here:

I appreciate your help on that.
