Recently, the up-arrow to scroll in my bash history in iTerm 2 stopped functioning as it did before. In the past, if I started typing a command (let's say, `curl') and then pressed up, it would only cycle through my bash history that matched that prefix (similar to pressing C-r). Anyone have any idea why this might have been unset and/or how I set this back to the default?

I don't think iTerm has anything to do with that. – mkaito Jun 27 '12 at 14:55
This rather sounds like zsh functionality – slhck Jun 27 '12 at 16:02
