R-beta: command line editing?

I would love to have bash-like command line editing in R. (Press up cursor
and see previous command line; use left cursor to go back then edit it)

Appendix B in Rnotes describes Splus I guess, not R.  Starting R by
R -e
doesn't let any of the following described actions (B.3) work.

I don't use vi or EMACs (I use Nedit), so I would prefer bash-like
interface anyway. (I don't think I even installed EMACs)

Thanks for any help!
