Anyone here who knows offhand how to solve this?

While getting stuff working with 21, I ran into the problem of the way
comint pulls its history -- the only way to modify this is by changing
comint-input-ring-separator but there seem to be a problem making it
do the right thing with tcsh's time-stamped history file.  The file
has "#+NUM" lines between actual history lines.  I want to set it so
it will work with both this is and normal file -- using a regexp like
"\\(\n#.*\\)?\n" -- but the problem is that this regexp works in a
different way when you do re-search-backward than the way it behaves
with a forward search.

Is there any way to solve this?  Otherwise, maybe it is better to
collect the history from the beginning forward into a list, then
iterate over the reverse of that list and put things in the history

          ((lambda (x) (x x)) (lambda (x) (x x)))          Eli Barzilay:
