I’m using elixir on macos and linux(arch BTW). Both installed from brew and pacman, respectively, and have version 1.15.6. But finding the readline mode of has different behaviour, which I’ll explain:

It works as expected, detele one character before cursor, while in linux:
Seems like the “ctrl-h” has the same behaviour as “ctrl-w” in linux. In daily use, I need to switch from linux and macos very often, and this inconsistent behaviour on different platform annoys me a lot. I’ve checked the doc of iex, but found nothing helpful.
