[R] R command history -- can it be like Matlab's?

Hi all,

In R GUI window, if you use "up" and "down" key, you will be able to recall the previous and next command that has been used and stored in the command history cache.

But there is one inconvenience:

In Matlab, you can type the first a few characters of the command that you previously used,

and then press “up" key, you will be able to get to that previous command very fast,

no matter how long ago it has been used...

In R GUI, there is no such functionality.

Any thoughts on making R work my productivity?

Also where do I find good debugger for R?
